Veteran Burial Identification Project

Friends of Woodlawn Cemetery is doing extensive research to identify the veterans buried in the cemetery. Flags and markers are stolen or moved which makes this process nearly impossible. We are offering small stickers for free that can be placed on the stone itself. If anyone has a family member who served in the military and is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, please stop by the cemetery office between 8:30-4:30 pm and ask for a vet sticker. Instructions as to where to place the sticker are available from the Superintendent.
