  • PIctures taken in grave sections that are NEVER shown on TV or printed in Newspapers.....areas where Veteran's were given grey flat stones instead of the beautiful upright Marble Headstones (which are NOW required for all Veteran's grave sites). Sadly, many drive by and do not know that Veterans (our loved ones) are buried here.
