Mount Moriah is the final resting place for 1,000s of veterans from the Revolution, Civil War, Spanish American War, War of 1812, World Wars I & II, Vietnam, and Korea.
Two companies will donate their services in an effort to upright, restore, and in some cases, reassemble some of the toppled U.S. military veterans’ grave markers and monuments.
