National Cemeteries and Veterans Day go hand-in-hand. Who do you know that is a Veteran? Do you have a plan to show gratitude for their service? One way to honor the memory of those who have served our country is to find the fallen in a national cemetery. Use the BillionGraves app to document their grave and have it tagged with a GPS location.
