Lt Eagleson’s gravesite found at Wreaths Across America event

On Wreaths Across America Day Dec. 16, the post co-sponsored the Lake View Cemetery WAA event with the Seattle Sons of the American Revolution by providing an honor guard and guest speaker. Comrade Commander Aly Teeter spoke about the significance of the day and our post’s connection to the cemetery, which is our namesake, Lt James Eagleson. Lt Eagleson’s gravestone hadn’t been tracked down by the organizers but our commander managed to find it on the southern border of the cemetery.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered, from post members, to the Navigator Scouts, and friends who currently serve. It was a memorable and beautiful morning for honoring our fallen veterans.
