Letter to the Editor: A remembrance

To the editor: On the centennial of the Armistice of World War I, members of the Columbia Gorge community came together at the Stonehenge Memorial to remember the sacrifices of many men and women who voluntarily set aside their personal liberties to answer our nations call to arms and go to a foreign land and defend those who could not defend themselves from bitter oppression. On behalf of the Stonehenge Memorial Community Committee, a heartfelt thank you to everyone who planned this special event over the past two years, and to those who endured the crisp winter morning to gather 100 years later on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, in the 11th month.
