Veteran Marlene Varga of the Community Military Appreciation Committee, facing with phone, broadcasts a scaled down version of the annual Memorial Day service over Facebook live as "Taps" is played at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site on Monday morning, May 25, 2020. Varga was also joined by veteran Michael Burton, from left, Fort Vancouver superintendent Tracy Fortmann, veteran Larry Smith and Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle. CMAC was not able to have their annual Memorial Day service, which usually draws hundreds of people, this year because of COVID-19 concerns so they hoped to share the experience over video. Varga said the holiday is not a day for a celebration but a day to remember those lost. "We never forget," she said. (Amanda Cowan/The Columbian)
