Monday, May 30, 2016 is Memorial Day
On Memorial Day the nation pauses to recall and thank the men and women who fought to defend the United States in wartime. HistoryLink.org is proud to host the complete online honor rolls of Washington state citizens who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Philippines, World War I, World War II (including merchant mariners), Korea, Vietnam, Granada, the Gulf War, Afghanistan, and the Iraq War.
We also maintain online honor rolls of University of Washington students, faculty, and staff killed in World War II and public-safety officers statewide who died in the line of duty. We want to thank Garden of Remembrance co-organizer Dave Barber for helping us to maintain this tribute. And let us not forget the memorial's founding spirit and primary sponsor, the late Patsy Bullitt Collins, who suffered her own loss during World War II.
