Veterans Cemetery Up Against Deadline
By Krista Almanzan
Seaside, CA – The idea to build a Veterans Cemetery on former Fort Ord has been in the works for about two decades. This year, the project is up against a deadline. The Central Coast Veterans Cemetery Foundation has to raise $1.1-million by August.
So far, the Foundation has raised $180,000. On Memorial Day, the group will be at the Black Horse Bayonet Clubhouse in Seaside to answer questions about the project. The Meet and Greet is from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.
KAZU's Krista Almanzan spoke with retired Navy Veteran and Foundation President, Janet Parks.
