Memorial Day Ceremony Planned at Carpinteria Cemetery

Vietnam veteran and longtime Carpinteria resident Larry Siegel will be the featured speaker

A Memorial Day ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, May 31 at the Carpinteria Cemetery, 1501 Cravens Lane.

The featured speaker will be longtime Carpinteria resident Larry Siegel, who served in the Vietnam War as a captain in the U.S. Army Civil Affairs program.

His experiences in the country are the subject of his first book Tears of the Dragon: The Other Vietnam War, published last year.

The ceremony will include the posting of the colors, singing of the national anthem, the reading of the names of those from Carpinteria who have fallen in battle, and presentation of wreaths and flowers by various organizations and individuals.

A cannon salute and taps will close out the ceremony.

For those wishing to present wreaths or flowers, call Peter or Melinda Bie at 805.680.6459.

— Peter Bie is an event organizer.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
