Deceased veterans are recognized throughout the cemetery with a foot marker at the grave. This foot marker is provided to the family by the government. The marker and installation is free of charge to the families. Families must apply for this foot marker at the funeral home that handled the service of the deceased. They must provide the funeral home with the veteran’s discharge papers in order to apply for the foot marker.
Our local American Legion Post #143 holds a flag raising ceremony every first Saturday of the month at Lawncroft Cemetery honoring a veteran. Please contact Post #143 directly to make a request. Although each individual grave is not flagged at holiday times, the American Legion provides the cemetery with flags for veteran graves. The flags are located in Lawncroft’s office.
