Hundreds of roses from the Ten Grands concert at Seattle's Benaroya Hall were donated to Veterans' Memorial Cemetery at Evergreen Washelli.
 
Volunteers from UW's Naval ROTC program on Saturday placed the flowers on individual headstones during a ceremony.

"It was important for me to be here today to honor those who have gone before me. I've had past family members buried in memorials like this around the country and I wish people would do that to my relatives and me in the future because they deserve the honor,” said Andrew Taylor.

This marks the fourth year of the "Roses for Veterans" program and floral donation from the "Concert for a Cause."
