Grave Markers Project

1812 Veteran MarkerFor the 2010-2012 term, Hon. State President Mary Walker chose Grave Marking as her State President’s Project.  Many chapters and members are not aware that funds still exist for this project and need to be utilized.

If you would like to mark a veterans grave, real daughter, or a member; please read the FAQ’s for more information.  Also, the permit forms and price listings are now on our state website; just look under the State Committee category and expand the “Grave Markers and Locations” sub category.

Please contact Barbara Stevens if you need further assistance.  I look forward to processing your paperwork and sending a check to Best Stamp & Seal Company for your marker(s).
