VA Grave Program For Burial In Non-VA Cemeteries
The VA is offering a new program for Veterans not buried in
national or state veterans' cemeteries, or those without a
government grave marker.
The new program makes available a medallion that can be
affixed to existing graves, and can be used instead of a
traditional government headstone. Per
the VA, "The medallion is available in three sizes: 5", 3"
and 1 " in width. Each bronze medallion features the image
of a folded burial flag adorned with laurels and is
inscribed with the word "Veteran" at the top and the branch
of service at the bottom.
Next of kin will receive the medallion, along with a kit
that will allow the family or the staff of a private
cemetery to affix the medallion to a headstone, grave
marker, mausoleum or columbarium niche cover."
For information on the program, click the picture at
right. Information about other
VA burial benefits can be obtained
from national cemetery offices, from the VA website on the
www.cem.va.gov or by calling VA regional offices
toll-free at 1-800-827-1000.
ArmySignalOCS is expanding its site to
include personal stories, pictures, audio and video memories
from Army Signal OCS graduates, their families and friends.
If you want to memorialize your time in the Signal Corps,
send us your story.
Not all stories will be published.
ArmySignalOCS editors will read each submission and select
best of breed and interest to all. However, any topic is
acceptable: sad, happy, poignant, humorous, love laced, hard
hitting, true war stories, stories of fire fights, or just
memories of rainy nights in Georgia... send us what you have
and include pictures. For more information, click on the
Web Submissions link at left.
To read some of the stores already
submitted, see their pictures, or simply wander through the
memories of your fellow officers, click on the
Veterans' Salutes section at left.
Of Your OCS Class
When you do a search on this site for a
member of your OCS Class, you end up on a web page with a
table showing the list of class members for your class, and
their current status. The bottom half of most pages is
blank. We want to fill it with pictures of the people in
that class. If you have candid pictures of class members,
especially if they were taken while you were in OCS,
please send them to us. We will post them on your
class' page. Be sure to give us a little background on your
pictures, so that we can properly label them. If you have
any good pics, take them down to your local drug store and
ask them to scan them at 300 dpi to a file. Attach your file
to an eMail, and send it to us at
WebMaster@ArmySignalOCS.com. Be sure to tell us the
Class Number, identify the people in it, and tell us a bit
about the setting, date, and anything else you can remember.
Both we, and your classmates, thank you.
