Keeping memories alive: Greg Jensen stands and salutes as taps is played Monday during military honors offered at the chapel nearby at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake. Jensen, a Vietnam-era veteran of the Air Force, goes to the cemetery almost every day with his lawn chair and a Bible to visit the grave of his wife of 42 years, Estrella. “It’s been 16 months and I miss her every day,” he said. Indoors, a handful of veterans and a few family members read the names of veterans who died without a military funeral, said prayers and folded a flag, followed by a gun salute and taps.
