Arlington West will come to Fallbrook, Memorial Day, May 29, 2006.
A new spiritual feature:
Faith Leaders for Peace flfpeace.org, a San Diego group of religious leaders from all faith traditions who work for peace in Iraq. The group includes over 70 Jewish,Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Sufi clergy.
At 11:00am they will be giving a memorial service, each in their own tradition. The faith leaders will make a solemn procession into Live Oak Park to the middle of the memorial. Then one by one, each will give a short memorial prayer.
The San Diego Arlington West is the only chapter that still puts out one cross for each soldier's death in Iraq - the other chapters have had to cut off the number of crosses, due to logistical issues, and only symbolically represent each death. We display the entire 2,300+ Crosses, Stars of David, and Crescent Moons - each with the name, age, rank, and branch of service attached.
Live Oak Park is a beautiful county park, with gentle hills, oak trees, and
picnic areas - the address is 2746 Reche Rd Fallbrook, CA 92028.
