Run to Tahoma memorial dedicated July 8
(Port Orchard, WA) Join the Kitsap
County Veterans Advisory Board, County Commissioners, veterans service
organizations, guests, and the public on July 8 for the dedication of
The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma Memorial.
The program will begin at 6 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Chambers of the
County Administration Building, located at 619 Division Street, Port
Orchard. A video of the 2015 The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma VI will be
shown, followed by the presentation of campaign streamers to veterans
service organizations and the dedication. The memorial is permanently
located on the fourth floor of the Administration Building.
The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma began in 2008 when a small group of
stakeholders received the remains of unclaimed veterans in the care of
the Kitsap County Coroner, and escorted the remains to the Tahoma
National Cemetery for interment. As long as there is at least one
unclaimed veteran's remains, The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma will take
place to honor and remember them.
