Volunteers decorated the graves of the war dead with flags, as usual. And a few came to decorate individual graves and just walk quietly.

At the Shoreline Veterans' Recognition Plaza the flags flew for all the branches of service.

A memorial was left for a family member at the Shoreline Veterans' Recognition Plaza. Individual bricks can be engraved to memorialize service members from any branch, any time.
