The collection of symbolic grave markers will be hosted by Veterans for Peace Chapter 134 of Tacoma. The group is assisted in planning by the group called “Federal Way Matters”, who have been involved in local peace activities. The assembly and break-down of the markers will be aided by Veterans for Peace chapters from Seattle and Olympia. Volunteers are welcome to join set-up at dawn on the 26th and break-down at dusk on the 28th. The organizers will attempt to display the human costs of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and make it meaningful to all who see it. The memorial this year will also include recognition of civilian deaths in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Admission is free to the public from dawn to dusk. This is a non-political display intended to inspire consideration on who pays and who profits from wars. For any questions or for volunteer opportunities contact Ray Nacanaynay, VFP Chapter 134 President.
