Marita Wolverton decorates her husband's grave at the Kenai cemetery Friday at the onset of the Memorial Day weekend. "He loved flowers," she said. James N. Wolverton Jr. served during the Vietnam era and was also a member of the Alaska State Guard (now the Alaska State Defense Force). "We do need to remember our vets," Marita Wolverton said. "I think we're doing a better job of that now with the guys coming back from the Middle East than we did coming back from Vietnam, though." A Memorial Day observance is planned for 11 a.m. today at the cemetery, with another to follow at 1 p.m. at Leif Hansen Memorial Park in Kenai.
