SILVERDALE — A Gold Star Banner will be displayed in honor of Master-at-Arms Second Class Sean Brazas, a Naval Base Kitsap sailor who was killed in action on May 30 in Afghanistan.
The ceremony will be held Friday, 10:30 a.m., at the intersection of Randall Way and Kitsap Mall Boulevard in Silverdale.
Among those attending the ceremony: Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent; Capt. Pete Dawson, commanding officer of Naval Base Kitsap; Capt. Christopher Carter, executive officer of Naval Base Kitsap; and Command Master Chief Sean Peirsel.
The banner was funded by the chief petty officers of Naval Base Kitsap. It is unique because one half of the banner will feature a Gold Star for Brazas, and the other half will feature a blue star for Brazas’ wife, Allie, a yeoman second class at Naval Base Kitsap.
