Volunteers interested in cleaning headstones in national cemeteries can sign up for a National Day of Service to be held in 65 locations Sept. 10.
“The National Day of Service is an inspiring way to bring into focus the lives lost in the terrorist attacks on our country,” said Under Secretary for Memorial Affairs, Matt Quinn. “As we reflect on the tragic events of 20 years ago, it is also appropriate to remember and honor the men and women who have given their lives throughout the Global War on Terror. Volunteering to assist with beautification projects to keep our cemeteries at national shrine standards is a fitting tribute to thank all of our brave heroes for their sacrifices on our behalf.”
