Remembering The Fallen on Memorial Day

by David Huebner- US Ambassador to New Zeland and Samoa

I very much regret not being able to get back to Wellington from my Washington meetings in time for Memorial Day this year. I had been looking forward to the annual memorial service at Old St Paul’s and the special events in Paekakariki, but flight schedules did not align favorably.

Several of my colleagues, including my Deputy Chief of Mission Marie Damour, attended today’s events on my behalf. I asked my colleague Adrian Pratt to share his impressions of the memorials. Click here to read his guest post.
