Rededicating WWII Plaque

Pierce Transit will be reinstalling and rededicating the Parkland World War II memorial plaque on Armed Services Day.

The memorial plaque was originally installed in October 1948 and was stolen in September 2007. The thieves sold it to a metal recycling business. The plaque was eventually identified and returned to Pierce Transit. The bronze plaque required extensive repair and is now ready to be reinstalled in its original location.

Please join State Senator Rosa Franklin, members of the American Legion Post 2 - Parkland, Parkland Community Association, Bethel High School Junior ROTC cadets, Pierce Transit employees, community representatives and others to pay tribute to the 15 people from the Parkland area who gave their lives in service of our country in World War II.
