Mike Cooley, the 80-year-old vet and childhood friend who visits Munro's grave each dawn and dusk, is too old to march this Veteran's Day. With increasing difficulty, he maintains the worn flag that's flanked by two hulking, gray gun mounts where Munro and his parents are buried. "It gets harder in the winter," Cooley says, "but it's a commitment."

Author's note: Mike Cooley died last week. He and his old friend Doug Munro will be honored at a U.S. Coast Guard ceremony on Sept. 27 at the Cle Elum cemetery, where officers will dedicate a new flagpole and floodlight.
