It's Memorial Day weekend


Perhaps you're wondering where a veteran is buried. Maybe a family friend, an uncle you never really knew, an old classmate, a friend of a friend.

The Nationwide Gravesite Locator might be able to help you.

The Web site contains burial locations of veterans and their family members in VA National Cemeteries, state veterans cemeteries, various other military and Department of Interior cemeteries, and for veterans buried in private cemeteries when the grave is marked with a government grave marker.

OK, everybody, try not to get drunk and get behind the wheel of an RV, ATV, SUV, F150, boat, personal watercraft, 18-wheeler or any other large machinery and wipe out a family of 5 this weekend, ya hear?

Thanks.
