VFW to expand veterans memorial on PO waterfront

January 19th, 2013 by Chris Henry

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Fred Needham Post 2669 has plans to expand its veterans memorial on the Port Orchard waterfront.

On July 4, the post dedicated the Veterans Wall at Marina Park, featuring more than 1,100 tiles honoring service members living and dead. The wall did not have enough space to meet demand for the tiles, said John Weatherill, post commander.

The post has approved an additional wall with 500 memorial bricks and is now taking orders.

The new bricks cost $50 each. Applications are available at the post or on its website, www.vfwpost2669.org. Return to VFW 2669, 736 Bay St., Port Orchard, Wash., 98366.

For more information, call (360) 876-2669 or email vpost@live.com.
