Description EN

Every place has veterans cemeteries. Port Orchard near Manchester, Washington, is no exception. This one was just down the road from where I went shopping several times. So, I stopped to take a look around, and remember history.

Cemetery Fencing

 

An interesting historical language observation in this cemetery, carved in stone, was the old use of the term "Portorico" for what we now call Puerto Rico.

Portorico

Posted coordinates, for stage 1, are near an unlocked opening and parking place. Get the lower year XXXX for the logging code from the plaque near here.

Memorial

Stage 2 coordinates are where I spent several minutes trying to repair a wind chime near a grave marker. Get the higher year YYYY for the logging code here. The logging code is: XXXX-YYYY
