Unclaimed Remains Honored at Washington Crossing National Cemetery
Recently, Channel Six Action News ran a news piece about veterans that passed that not only have no family members available to honor their service but their remains have never been claimed. This video does great honor to those veterans that are not forgotten....
We have the power to honor our comrades in arms, and we’re doing something about it
RECRUIT, TRAIN, AND FUNDRAISE
We conduct volunteer recruitment and training programs. We organize fundraising efforts to support the Washington Crossing National Cemetery to provide supplementary programs, beautification and memorial programs, and the design and construction of memorials and stone monuments.
We are working hard to promote the attainment of National Shrine status for the Washington Crossing National Cemetery through beautification endeavors on the cemetery grounds. One example of our efforts is the creation and maintenance of an Avenue of Flags, comprised of the US Flag donated by families of veterans who received the Burial Flag at the funeral service for their loved ones.
PLAN AND CONDUCT SPECIAL EVENTS
We strive to improve public awareness of the mission of Veterans Administration national cemeteries. We assist the staff of the Washington Crossing National Cemetery in the planning and conduct of major ceremonies and special events such as the observances of Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and other such days deemed appropriate to commemorate and honor those who served or are serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, or those interred in the cemetery.
