‘Memorial Day”, Springwood 2009.
Sandy Pearson was a much loved and respected member of the Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans and Associated Forces family. His regular attendances at our annual Memorial Day were greatly appreciated.
Sunday 19th August, was the occasion of the Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans & Associated Forces 2012 Memorial Day. Despite his wife Marjorie having passed away just 2 weeks before, Sandy insisted on attending our Memorial Day as Patron. Such was the calibre of the man.
