In San Diego, 150 volunteers helped clean 3,000 headstones at the Fort Rosecrans Memorial Park, a veterans' cemetery.
“This is a great opportunity to pay tribute to the fallen heroes of our country and serve those who have served us,” said James Morris, who brought his four children to help with the project.
Volunteer Judy Anderson agreed. “This is meaningful,” she said. “I was excited to come this morning and happy to be doing this for those who died for us. It’s a labor of love.”
