    Very humbling,and for the workers knowing that each headstone is going to a Veteran that has died or been KIA has got to give them the incentive to give every one their best effort

    Our veterans DESERVE our best,,,,, GOD bless them all.

    A veteran is someone who, at one point in their life wrote a blank
    check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an
    amount of 'up to and including their life'.
