Yesterday, Memorial Day Monday, I attended the ground breaking for the new Sunset Beach Park. The park is located adjacent to where the Old Sunset Beach Bridge stood. There was a crowd of a few hundred people, many of who were dressed in their uniforms from their days in armed forces.
The Memorial Day ground breaking ceremony included a beautifully sung National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, and a dedication of a wreath on the Veteran’s Memorial by the Boy Scouts. They also asked all the men and women who had served in the armed forces to stand and state their rank and military branch. Here are a few photos from the event:
