Where did you serve and what did you do?
Our post conducted a police call and headstone cleaning at Glenwood Cemetery in Huntsville, Alabama. Glenwood has a unique history (available at https://www.huntsvilleal.gov/historicmarkers/glenwood-cemetery/) We were able to safely clean up the grounds and over 30 headstones of African American veterans dating back to the Civil War.
How are you #StillServing?
VFW Post 5162 continues to clean headstones at local cemeteries to ensure fallen veterans final resting places are maintained in a respectful manner.
Why do you do it?
Our post believes in the core values of the VFW including supporting veterans, their families, and the community. This is just one way of accomplishing all three at once.
