I took a couple pictures from the TV, that I wanted to share with you. (You can see my little Christmas tree in the reflection of my front window)
The picture above shows the huge contingent of police and fire vehicles lined up on the runway at Mc Chord Air Force Base that will be in the procession, thru the city of Lakewood and on to the Tacoma Dome for the memorial service. There was also another area of hundreds of vehicles parked in an “over flow” area that will file in behind these vehicles.
As the vehicles leave Mc Chord they all drive under this huge flag draped across the street by the Lakewood and University Place fire departments. (This is just a few blocks from where my son lives.)
All of these vehicles have met up with the four hearses waiting at the Lakewood Police Department. I understand from the TV reporters that there are hundreds & hundreds of folks lining the streets along the procession route. It’s showing just 23* on my thermometer at this moment. Those are brave folks. I can’t get out to the route as the streets are blocked. So I’m home~watching this unfold on the television.
