Veteran Grave Markers
The Department of Veteran Affairs will furnish a free government-issued headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death. The distinction is meant to give honor to those who have made the sacrifice for this country.
A garbage collector told Reader’s Digest that he had once found World War I and World War II grave marker medallions in a few recycling bins. He reported them to the police in hopes that they would be returned to their rightful owners.
