There were several military ties to yesterday’s memorial service for the four fallen Lakewood police officers: Sgt. Mark Renninger was a former Army Ranger at Fort Lewis. The procession began at McChord Air Force Base. The military sent hundreds of people to the ceremony.
But you should read our story about the memorial or any of our stories on the topic not because of those ties (that’s just my excuse for posting it here), but because it was a deeply emotional, moving ceremony.
