“Thank you for your service”.
How many times have you heard those words? As a retired Funeral Director I have heard them often. After awhile those words become shallow and meaningless.
During my time as a funeral director I’ve had the privilege of serving at the funerals of hundreds of fallen heroes. Walking through the cemeteries, I saw many graves that were not cared for. Grass, moss and algae all over the headstones and worse some damaged or broken.
Now retired I have taken personal responsibility to adopt many of the graves of our fallen heroes. By cleaning the headstones and markers and placing flags on the graves, I feel I am making a difference.
Those words, “Thank you for your service” now holds meaning for me.
Folks we can do this. Join the hundreds of individuals who are making a difference. You can too. Adopt a veterans grave and start honoring our fallen veterans.
Honoring Out Fallen Veterans
My Current Project.
June 14, 2021.
I am currently working on two veterans grave in Seabrook, NH. Below are before photos of the project. Both graves belong to veterans of WW I. They are in a well cared for cemetery but no family to maintain the upkeep of the headstone.
More photos to come of the work in progress.
