-“CALVERTON, N.Y. — Calverton National Cemetery conducts a special ceremony for veterans who had no one attend their funeral. On the second Wednesday of each month the cemetery organizes a color guard and a flag-folding detail to give the deceased service members proper honors. Michael Picerno, Calverton National Cemetery director, estimates that 300-400 veterans are buried each year without friends or family at their service.”- [pb_vidembed title=”” caption=”” url=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9-dgLlR_LhA” type=”yt” w=”630″ h=”400″] If you like this post and want to see more of this daily Veteran Art blog, please subscribe now.
