The Washington Army National Guard will be firing a cannon salute at about 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 10, at the north end of Camp Murray’s parade field, according to an advisory.
The cannon salute is part of a retirement ceremony for Col. James Drago, inspector general of the Washington National Guard. The duration of the ceremonial cannon firing is estimated to be less than 20 seconds, but will be audible in the Tillicum neighborhood, on Camp Murray and on parts of Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Questions or concerns should be directed to the Washington National Guard public affairs office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 253-512-8989.
