The three musketeers shown
above spent their past Saturday doing an annual clean up of the
Bremerton Base Subvet's plot in Bremerton's Ivy Green Cemetery.
In 1995 the City of Bremerton
passed a resolution dedicating 40 burial sites at Ivy Green Cemetery
specifically for burial of those veterans who have served in
submarines of the United States Navy.
Subsequently, in 2002, USSVI-Bremerton Base placed a stone monument
there commemorating those submarine veterans. Ivy Green Cemetery is
located at 1401 Naval Avenue, at the opposite end of Naval Avenue
from Naval Station Kitsap-Bremerton, generally known as PSNS.
