Councilmember Reagan Dunn speaks at Tahoma National Cemetery's service for departed veterans

It was a great privilege to speak at Tahoma National Cemetery's "Second Saturday Service" for departed veterans who were buried without a committal service due to COVID-19. Together, we honored 200 veterans who have passed on to their final resting place.

My heart goes out to the family members were unable to attend a service because of COVID-19 risks and restrictions. We had the very important honor of laying their loved ones to rest on their behalf.

I want to especially thank VFW Post 6785 for their tribute to our servicemen and women during the ceremony.
