A ceremony was held yesterday morning to honor those who have lost their lives at sea.  American Legion Post 29 in Washington led a ceremony to honor Sailors and Marines at 8:30 yesterday morning at the Crooked Creek Bridge on old Highway 92.  Approximately 40 people took part in this observance.

Members of the American Legion led the service with a Color Guard presentation followed by an invocation, a rifle salute and the playing of Taps.  Those in attendance also had an opportunity to toss flowers in Crooked Creek to remember those lost.
