More scandals involving veterans...Walter Reed for those poor vets who have returned from the wars maimed and disabled, and the dead vets at Arlington...not sure if the VA could do a better job than the Army but it might should be given a chance...VFW Says Army Should Lose Arlington Cemetery
Yeah...It makes me appreciate my aunt's grave site, about 20 miles from here. I've mention several times to my family, how well they keep the grave site up. She was a veteran of the Korean War, and she was one of the sweetest persons in the world. They go to each grave site, where a veteran is laid to rest, and place two flags at their grave site. They line the chain linked fence, with flags, around the whole perimeter of the cemetary. It's not an "overkill," as they are placed neatly apart.
I got some pictures of the grave site, from a couple years ago. It was during Memorial Day. Next time I go through them, I may through a couple up on the internet. The cemetary really looks nice, and they put up a new marble entrance sign, back in 2000, I do believe. Ten years old is STILL, pretty new, when it comes to marble. You can't see one scratch, or any wear whatsoever. The color still looks spectacular as well.
Yeah, that's a shame about Arlington. I'm sure a Republican is behind this, as they have as much interest in you alive, as you are dead. I can't see how people can sleep at night, pulling this nonsense off!!
It really is!!
I guess it may be human nature when you get older, but I think about the overall management of grave sites a lot more, the older I get. (and not only the vets, even though I look to them as saints)
