Jefferson County Bell Ringing for Veterans
Port Townsend, Washington – 10-19-19
ABOUT THE MISSION:
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Patriot Guard Riders, please join me as we show Honor, Respect and Appreciation to the many Jefferson County Veterans who have passed away in the last six months. For some, this may be the last time their name is spoken in public. Each veteran’s name is read with the branch in which he or she served, conflicts served in and awards received if applicable, followed by the ringing of a bell. After all the names are recognized a piper plays Amazing Grace, The Port Townsend American Legion presents a rifle salute followed by a bugler playing taps. The Washington State National Guard folds and presents the American Flag. Please come out and help ensure each Veteran is given the Honor and Respect they deserve. This is a flag-line only mission. Please be mindful of the ferry as space will fill quickly, even for motorcycles. It is advised that you use the reservation system if possible.
