Anacortes veterans honored

Published November 13, 2017 / by Steve Berentson

Kudos to the Port of Anacortes for once again hosting a Veterans Day celebration. Attached here are images of just some of the dozens of veterans who attended the event. Among them are Max Kliewer, Matt Miller, Skip Moore, Bud Haines, Chris Long, Paul Schwekert, Jr., Lee Hawes, Ernie Haakenson, Steve McLean, Dan Worra and Jack Tobien. My apologies to those I could not identify. My thanks to ALL veterans, and their families!

About Steve Berentson
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
