On Saturday, September 27 the families and fellow comrades of the fallen heroes will have the chance to confidentially get together for a time of sharing, and will attend break-out sessions which will provide information to assist in the process of coping with their loss and sacrifice. A Candlelight Vigil will happen at Columbia Park at the Veteran's Memorial in Kennewick, Washington. Everyone is encouraged to join the families at the Candlelight Ceremony beside the Columbia River. The Vigil will start at 7:30 in the evening.
The following day Sunday, September 28 there will be an official State Recognition Ceremony that will be hosted by the City of West Richland at Flat Top Park. The goal of the event is to have each of our heroes memory represented.
This will be the seventh year for the families of Washington to be united and be there for each other for a time of comfort and healing. The event will be a great time to welcome the Families of the Fallen from the States of Oregon, Idaho, Hawaii and Alaska for the first time. The Memorial Ceremony will begin at 11:00 in the morning.
