Remember You Are Remembered !

This page contains links to my pages honoring

Our War Heroes

Also some off-site links.

I thought this was important to share! It's from the ISGS newsletter:

Free headstones for U.S. veterans The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs provides free headstones for any deceased U.S. veteran "in any cemetery across the globe." If a veteran already has a special veteran headstone and it is now badly deteriorated, illegible, stolen or vandalized, a new one can be placed. If a veteran's body was never recovered, ashes scattered or buried at sea, a special headstone "in memory of" can be placed in a recognized cemetery. Read more details at http//tinyurl.com/y9kw476p. Information can also be found on the government website at http://tinyurl.com/yblspbta (which includes a link to the form needed to request a headstone or marker.)
