#4 Personally, I think it would be grand if other people started putting up monuments to Casey Sheehan. Featuring such epitaphs as:

"Duty - Honor - Country"

"Garryowen" (1st Cav Division song)

"The Hero Dies But Once"

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself"

"I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country"

"Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country"

"Even peace may be purchased at too high a price"

"He that would live in peace and at ease must not speak all he knows or all he sees"

"Freedom itself was attacked this morning by a faceless coward, and freedom will be defended"

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated"

#5 Well, there is no "headstone", but just left and below the yellow flowers there is what looks like one of those small ground level markers. Plus, comments on other blogs say this doesn't look like the same area of cemetary where Cindy posed for pictures on her son'e grave. Course, we don't know that one wasn't staged either.

#6 Doesn't the government supply markers of Vermont granite to those killed in action? I know some of my relatives from earlier wars have received replacement stones from the government.

#7 It's possible that there's no marker because they're afraid someone will deface it. They might be right. Cindy has pissed off a lot of people, and all it takes is one idiot -- and not necessarily one who disagrees with her -- to make a very sad spectacle.

#8 "Benefit
VA provides headstones and markers for the graves of veterans anywhere in the world and for eligible dependents of veterans buried in national, state veteran or federal cemeteries. Flat bronze, flat granite, flat marble and upright marble types are available to mark the grave of a veteran or dependent in the style consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers also are available to mark columbaria used for the inurnment of cremated remains.

Headstones and markers are inscribed with the name of the deceased, the years of birth and death, and branch of service. Optional items that also may be inscribed at VA expense are: military grade, rank or rate; war service (such as "World War II"); months and days of birth and death; an emblem reflecting one's beliefs; valor awards received; and the Purple Heart. Additional items may be inscribed at private expense.

When burial is in a national cemetery, military post or state veterans cemetery, the headstone or marker is ordered through the cemetery, which will place it on the grave. Information regarding style, inscription, shipping and placement can be obtained from the cemetery.

When burial occurs in a cemetery other than a national cemetery or a state veterans cemetery, the headstone or marker must be applied for from VA. It is shipped at government expense to the consignee designated on the application. VA, however, does not pay the cost of placing the headstone or marker on the grave."
