Dedication of Cemetery After Expansion Phase II Complete

 

A dedication of the Phase II Expansion of the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery is scheduled for Tuesday, May 10 at 11 a.m.

Commissioner Pete Wheeler and the Veterans Service Board of the Georgia Department of Veterans Service will host the event, a Department of Veterans Service news release says. The public is invited.

State Senator Johnny Grant of Milledgeville is the scheduled keynote speaker. 

Phase II is primarily an expansion of the cemetery’s overall interment capacity but it also includes a sod farm and enhancements to two of the existing buildings.

The new development encompasses about 10 acres, including the road network. The cemetery is estimated to have enough burial capacity through 2021 now that Phase II has been completed.

bin Laden photo thoughts?

CBS News just reported that President Obama told their reporter he would not release photos of Osama bin Laden's corpse.

"We don't trot out this stuff as trophies," Obama told CBS, according to quotes provided by White House press secretary Jay Carney. "We don't need to spike the football."

Obama also said release of the gruesome photos could become "an incitement to additional violence" and be used by jihadists as "a propaganda tool."

"That's not who we are," Obama said.

How do you feel about this? Are we owed this information? Why or why not?
