The Unforgotten, Run to Tahoma Celebration of Life Ceremony that usually takes place on Memorial Day weekend to honor and escort the unclaimed remains of deceased veterans to the Tahoma National Cemetery is cancelled this year due to the coronavirus outbreak to protect the health of those who participate. The event will not be rescheduled for 2020.
The Kitsap County
Veterans' Advisory Board is made up of 17 volunteers from
throughout the county who are appointed by the Board of County
Commissioners for three-year terms. All members
must be veterans of military or merchant marine service
honorably discharged. A
simple majority of the council are members of local
chapters of national recognized veterans organizations.
The Veterans Advisory Board is chartered to advise County Commissioners on matters affecting local indigent veterans. Members are expected to attend monthly meetings and a longer annual retreat. Members also help coordinate the Veteran Stand Down events in April and September, and the annual The Unforgotten Run to Tahoma ceremony on Memorial Day weekend honoring the unclaimed remains of deceased veterans. The Veterans Advisory Board is also active with local Veterans Day and military appreciation ceremonies.
