Service remembers those who have given their Eves By Howard Yune 'Appeal-Democrat The scene recalled the grief and loss of war four decades ago - and of another struggle raging today. A platoon of camouflaged soldiers stalked not through a Vietnamese jungle But the aisles of Calvi^r Christian Center. As the men exited the back of a hall filled with about 450 spectators, machine-gun fire rippled through the public address system - followed by "medics" rushing grievously wounded infantrymen back inside on stretchers, then tending to them as their lives ebbed away. This modern-day passion play was perhaps the darkest and most vivid ~"^~T to play out at "A Grateful Nation Remembers," the annual Memorial Day observance hosted Sunday by Calvary Christian.

But the planners of Sunday's 14th annual festival envision a celebration that does more than entertain.. More than 12,000 visitors - some arriving from as far away as Fres- no and Vancouver - were expected to converge on the Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds for the festival's collection of musical performances and fair stands, according to the Punjabi American Heritage Society, which sponsors the event. The audience around the music stage was a constellation of color and bouncing rhythm, bright-hued robes dappling the young women dancing and many of the 2,000-strong crowd below.
