View Pictures from This Year's Event
Arlington Northwest Memorial is a traveling memorial that has been as far north as The Peace Arch, as far south as Centralia, as well as the other side of the Cascades. . It's an interactive replica of the Arlington National Cemetery, with markers showing deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq wars. It was created by the Evergreen Peace and Justice Community in Kirkland and Seattle's Veterans For Peace Chapter 92 in 2005. The collection of symbolic grave markers was hosted in May by Veterans for Peace Chapter 134 of Tacoma. Volunteers set up at dawn on Saturday morning, May 23rd at 7 am, and broke-down at dusk on the evening of Monday, May 25th. Chapter Vice-President Dave Dittemore performed “Taps” on the hour on his trumpet, throughout each day of the display. .
