Holly, MI – Gravestone Cleaning:
Dear friends of Great Lakes National Cemetery:

We are getting ready for the headstone cleaning at the Great Lakes National Cemetery April 23, 2016. In doing this this we are able to make sure if any of the headstones have chips, cracks or anything else wrong with them, the staff is notified so they can fix them before the Memorial Day Ceremony is held to honor our fallen veterans. We believe that this is the least we can do to show them the respect they deserve and a thank you for their service.
