Eagle Scout candidate Rene Garcia III is requesting assistance with his Eagle Scout project, which is a survey and creation of a directory of military veterans buried at the Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery.
His troop, led by Mario A. Morales, has collected the names and other information on headstones located at the Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery. Garcia will be presenting this draft directory to both American Legion Posts for their review.
Garcia seeks further assistance with documenting the information of persons buried at the cemetery who do not have military headstones, such as the names, branches of service, ranks, military campaigns the veterans participated in and any honors they received. He also plans to include GPS points in the directory.
He requests that this information be posted to the troop Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/Renes-Eagle-Scout-Project-452856555175353/, or brought to the Sahawe Hut or the cemetery desk at City Hall.
