An enormous thank you to all that joined Salsa de Rosa for the flag placement volunteer event at Washelli Memorial Cemetery in Seattle, WA. Also, a special thank you to Amber Krabach who organized the event. Rainy weather was not going to stop us from the very humbling experience, as 5,000 flags were placed by dozens of volunteers. Additionally, with the help of Home Depot donating a portion of the flags, all service members were honored. We are forever indebted to those who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend their country and values we hold so dear.
Being a Veteran owned company, Memorial and Veteran’s Day, are near and dear to our hearts. My father served in the Army and I served in the Navy. Needless to say, the Army Navy game every year can get a little hostile. I get asked from non-vets, “am I supposed to wish you a happy Memorial Day?” The key difference that I like to tell people; Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and Veteran’s Day is a day for those who have served and are serving.
A great way to honor Memorial Day is something as simple as a moment of silence, or a visit to a memorial cemetery, as that goes a long way. For those who served, we go in not for praise, but as a duty and honor to protect the freedoms we all cherish. This being said, The Boy Scouts will be unable to place flags on each service members grave at Washelli Cemetery this year due to COVID-19. Salsa de Rosa will be volunteering along with others to help with this Memorial Day tradition. We welcome all to join us to help and say thank you to those brave heroes.
