State and federal lawmakers are on hand to honor the war dead. Veterans for Peace started the observance in the sand next to Stearns Wharf about a decade ago. Organizers say Arlington West began as a protest against the American attack on Irag and the government hiding American troops coming home in coffins. Arlington West is now observed year round.
Crosses in the sand next to Stearns Wharf send the message our fallen heroes are not forgotten.
