The entrance to the memorial was fenced off denying entry from the sidewalk. Heavy debris lay close to the same ground as the monument. The new house construction opened small pits and unstable ground. A new flag was raised to half-mast. Two small red, white and blue reefs adorn the grounds.
The gathering at Palmer Cemetery was a modest crowd of people. People sincere to this day of remembrance.
