Former Vice President, Larry Manley recalls: "As child I remember growing up in Port Orchard and being allowed to go on a BIG field trip. I was in the fourth grade, and like many others my age had an older brother and uncle involved in the Vietnam war.
The field trip involved meeting a class from B.C. to have lunch and play, discovering that we had similarities with kids our own age from another country. The meeting occurred at Peace Arch Park and with the field trip it was explained about the peaceful relationship these two great nations shared. I can remember It was the first time I understood what Peace is. It had a major impact on me."
