  1. I saw the pictures at rocky gap cemetery use t be a beautiful place and it is a mess now with the stones just thrown down and on top. I was s proud to have my parents there because it was so beautiful, but now it is a disgrace for our veterans. it does not say much for what you think of our veterans. money should not be a issue to make it nice for our veterans. im very upset. it makesme wonder if they got the right stone with the right person because they are not even straight in line. the cemetery is ug now. a disgrace for our veterans. I hope this will be corrected. when we put flowers who is to know it is my family. my father was at pearl harbor and he deserved better than this. and now my mom is with him.
