Veteran’s should know of this tradition

I was not aware of this tradition….

While “Cleaning of the Stones” at the National Cemetery in Holly. I noticed a quarter had been placed on one of the stones. On another stone I noticed a nickel had been placed there. I was so touched with this that I took pictures. I then googled about the coins and found out this which I am very proud to share with you.

A coin left on a headstone lets the deceased soldiers family know that somebody stopped by to pay their respect.
·         Leaving a penny means you visited the site.
·         A nickel means you and the deceased soldier trained at boot camp together.
·         A dime means you served with the soldier.
·         A quarter is very significant because it means you were there when that soldier died.
