King County Councilmember Rod Dembowski joined local veterans at the 88th Annual Memorial Day service and concert at the Evergreen-Washelli Veterans’ Memorial Cemetery to make remarks and present the King County Council Memorial Day Proclamation.

More than 100 volunteers gathered bright and early on the holiday morning to place American flags on all 5,000 graves in the Veterans Memorial Cemetery. The annual concert was performed by the Seattle Pacific University Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Drum Corp and keynote remarks were provided by Brigadier General John M. Cho, the Commanding General of the U.S. Army’s Western Regional Medical Command.

Memorial Day also serves as a reminder to King County in ensuring veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned. King County runs a Veterans Program to assist veterans with housing, health care, and job training needs. You can learn more here. King County also sponsors the HERO internship program for veterans. More information on the HERO program is contained in this video.
