  1. A fine ceremony was well-attended in Edmonds. Mayor Nelson and various City Council members and dignataries attended. Beautiful day at Edmonds Cemetary. CAPT Richard Marin provided excellent remarks for this event. Proud to be a member of VFW Post 8870 representing our U.S. military on this ‘day of Remembrance.’
