Fallen Marine Lance Cpl. Gavin Brummund Memorial Tree Replacement Ceremony

Arnold, CA....Members of the Arnold and surrounding communities gathered to pay homage to fallen Marine Lance Cpl. Gavin Brummund and celebrate the beautiful new Dogwood that was planted to replace the one that vandals uprooted. Murphys Nursery graciously donated a replacement tree Arnold Ace Home Center donated a memorial bench. That will take up permanent residence next to the new Lance Cpl. Gavin R. Brummund Memorial Tree. In addition to local residents some local veterans groups attended including the Patriot Guard, Local Vietnam Veterans Chapter, and from Amador County members of the Top Cop Challenge attended and are spearheading a reward for the arrest and conviction of those who vandalized and destroyed the original tree. Gavin's parents Greg Brummund and Debra Morris were on hand and participated in planting the new tree....


Click Above For Larger Photo. Many Additional Photos Ceremony Video Are Below






Last week the White Pines Park Committee's Ginny Kafka flew into action organizing a replacement and letting the community know what had happened to the original tree.

Every time Ginny checked on the restrooms over the last few years she also checked on and watered the tree and made sure it was growing and thriving. She and her husband Bill, and the entire White Pines Park Committee felt the loss personally and knew that something had to be done to not only replace the tree but to do so in a manner that would honor a fallen Marine.

They did that and much more. The ceremony was a wonderful reminder of what a privilege it is to live and experience life in a small town. Lance Cpl. Gavin R. Brummund was killed on June 10th, 2010 by a remotely detonated roadside bomb in Afghanistan. He truly lives on in the memories of not only his family but in an entire community that watched one of their own grow to a young man and make the ultimate sacrifice in the service of his country and community.




Pictured above is the uprooted tree on the roof of the restroom building at the park, L Cpl. Gavin Brummund, Son of Debbie Morris and Gregg Brummund, who was raised in Arnold CA and graduated from Bret Harte High School in 2006. The above image was taken by AP photographer David Guttenfelder of Gavin during a firefight with the Taliban in the battle for Marja in Afghanistan. This photo made numerous appearances in the national press. Below that is a photo of Gavin that was displayed at his service at Frogtown.

Anyone with information on those who destroyed the original tree can call the Calaveras County Sheriff's Department at 209.754.6500. A reward fund has been set up for the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

    The Stockton Record shows a picture of Ginny's husband (again) planted this tree.

    Why did thepinetree leave him out of the action here? What are they hiding?

    There are only two types of men who have died so that you might have a chance at Eternal Life. Yashua The Only Begotten Son of YHWH and the soldier of the land you live upon so you might be able to give thanks to the first man and have that chance at Eternal Life through Yashua.

      Muslims, Buddhists and atheists would disagree with you - and they are all Americans, no different than your or me. Religion is best left out of this.

Its a great thing to see the community come together to pay tribute to one of our own. Greg and Debbie are two of the nicest folks around. Their son paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of his country. I hope they find and convict whomever it was that uprooted the first tree. Shame on them!!

    It's just a symptom of the lack of community, you can't really blame it on the individual. What do the local youth know about those who served? Nothing. Youth around here are ignored by the older ones.

      Not true! The local youth of Michelson Elementary have a wonderful Veteran's Day ceremony every year and this year Ms. Berry's 4th grade class wrote incredible essays on what a veteran is and many were chosen to read them to over 300+ veterans and family who attend the annual EPVMD Veteran Ceremony in Murphys!!! Those in attendance were proud and honored by those children's presence as well as the pride and thankful words that the children shared with them. ATTEND THE CEREMONY and witness this for yourself. Another one this Memorial Day!!!

        there were no youth at this ceremony. Look around. Obviously Teacher Berry's lesson was carried out by students as part of a school project, and not as part of a true community effort.

        you are talking Murphys, not Arnold.

        Arnold is in old District 3, which distinctly lacks community.
