Military walk of honor dedication set for Nov. 13

At White Salmon Cemetery

The dedication ceremony for the military "Walk of Honor," currently under construction at the White Salmon Cemetery on Snowden Road, has been scheduled for Nov. 13.

According to the organizer of the project at the cemetery, Jerry Smith of Husum, the event, set for 1 p.m. on that day, will include a fly-over by military aircraft and a performance by the Columbia High School band.

The Walk of Honor will feature the names of military veterans who live or previously lived in Klickitat County.

Smith added that order forms to request placement of the individualized bronze plaques that will line the walkway are now available. The bronze plaques will include the name, military branch, rank, and dates of the veteran's service. The form will provide all the details about the plaques, which are being made at a foundry in Wasco, Ore. The plaques cost $250.

Order forms are available at The Enterprise office at 220 E. Jewett in White Salmon, or they can be mailed out by request to Jerry Smith; contact Smith at 493-1934 or (541) 806-0711.
