Memorial Day, a day set aside each year to remember those who died while serving in the U.S. military, will be commemorated on Monday.

Local governments, VFW and American Legion posts, cemeteries and others across the South Sound are holding observances Sunday and Monday.

Here is a list:

SUNDAY, MAY 26

▪ Puyallup: 1 p.m., Pioneer Park Pavilion. U.S. Rep. Denny Heck and state Sen. Hans Zeiger will offer remarks. The Clan Gordon Pipe Band and Puyallup High School Wind Ensemble will perform.

▪ Olympia waterside service: 1 p.m. at Percival Landing Pavilion, 217 Thurston Ave. NW. A tribute to all veterans who perished at sea.

MONDAY, MAY 27
▪ Joint Base Lewis-McChord: 11:30 a.m. at Camp Lewis Cemetery on JBLM Lewis Main. Col. Nicole Lucas, JBLM garrison commander, will offer remarks. The I Corps Band will perform. People who wish to attend will require a pass from the JBLM visitor center at Exit 120 from Interstate 5. Signs will direct attendees to the cemetery. (If anybody goes to this event, if you look around you will find the spot that is reserved for me.)

▪ Tahoma National Cemetery: 1 p.m. at the main flag pole assembly area at the cemetery, 18600 SE 240th St., Kent. Gold Star families will offer remarks, and, weather permitting, there will be a flyover by the Steerman Group using WWII-vintage airplanes.

Chung will give remarks, and the Buffalo Soldiers will present a riderless horse tribute. Complimentary hotdogs and light refreshments provided. Horseback rides available for a small donation.

For those who missed this last year....Last May I was in Europe and one of our stops was to the American National Cemetery in Margraten (Netherlands). We visited the grave of my friend's grandfather. No one in his family had been to his grave. He also told me that no one in his family knew how or where he died...

So when we got home on the Thursday before Memorial Day, I started doing research and found the journal of the Commander of the Eight Infantry Division. I was able to document all the places he fought and where/how he died.
