Memorial Day. It’s not just a day off or an excuse to barbecue but a very important holiday. If you do nothing else, thank a veteran for their service. If you’d like to participate in other ways here are a few events in Everett…

The event features restored tanks, military vehicles and artillery weapons and includes driving and firing demonstrations, a Puget Sound Military Vehicle Collectors Club parade and NORDPAC RC tank battles, demonstrations and team competitions.
