Reflection Park on P.C. List

Ft. Lewis's Reflection Park is on the Pierce County budget for $10,000 in funding reports Dick Muri, Pierce County Councilmember.

“Pierce County has a long history of memorializing our military heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. This small appropriation is a good start to constructing the memorial park at Fort Lewis,” Muri says.

Reflection Park is to be six acres in the heart of Fort Lewis. Although at the Army post, all uniformed Services: Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and Washington State National Guard, will be honored.

The Park will memorialize the names of fallen servicemen and women with ties to Washington state. The memorial will span all major conflicts, coincident with the history of Fort Lewis, from the Great War (WW I) through the current conflict with provision for future sacrifices.
