    I live in a rural area of eastern PA. We have several near by churches and their respective cemeteries next to them. It was such a nice spring day today, that I decided to stroll the cemetery near my home. I like to look at the dates and especially the flag decorated stones of our veterans.
    I counted twelve Revolutionary War veteran graves..... seven War of 1812 graves..... six Korean War graves and over twenty WWI & WWII graves.
    This is in one small church cemetery in rural Eastern PA.
    The community commissions local foundries to make bronze placards where the grave stones are weathered beyond recognition. This way we can see the resting place of our Country's heroes.
    Honor our heroic vets, by visiting them from time to time. It gives us the needed feeling that our Country is still full of great Americans
