On Saturday, July 30th, the Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery was officially dedicated. Before the dedication ceremony began, Senator Nozzolio spoke with Rear Admiral Richard West, who was Keynote Speaker, and Commander Tom Watt, who served as Master of Ceremonies.The cemetery had been scheduled to open May 21. But its opening was postponed in March when some members of the Board of Supervisors said that had not been aware that the county would be responsible for the cemetery’s operation and maintenance.
