LAKEWOOD: Others played major memorial role

Thanks to Kathleen Merryman for her column (9-6) encouraging a welcome-home parade to our soldiers and airmen at Joint Base Lewis-McChord who have served so admirably this past year in Afghanistan and Iraq.

As mentioned in the article, I fully support the event and am eager to assist in its planning. I do wish to clarify that while I had a part in supporting the memorial for our fallen Lakewood police officers, the majority of that sterling effort was accomplished by Tom Minor and his Pierce County Emergency Management Team.

(Saunders is a former Lakewood police chief.)
