Go see The Arlington Project at Clover Park High School in Lakewood. This stunning student-created display honoring the fallen for Memorial Day has become a tradition in the best spirit of community service.
More than 400 students and staff participate in creating the memorial that includes over 6,800 individually named markers, a display of state and territory flags with the number of the fallen from each labeled on the staff. Especially marked are the Prisoners of War who either died in captivity or were executed in Iraq and seven posthumous Medal of Honor recipients. There is also a tribute to our coalition partners - all from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Arlington Project is worthy of recognition as a must-see for Memorial Day. We will not forget.
