GUAM (Pacific News Center)—The Veterans Affairs Office and other community leaders joined Gov. Eddie Calvo Thursday to announce the expansion of the Veterans Cemetery at Piti.
The project will take about nine months to complete. The expanded cemetery will include entry monument and gates, roadways, an irrigation system, landscaping, and supporting infrastructure. The project will also improve the current gravesites.
“Veterans Day is right around the corner. This is the day we honor the men and women who defended freedom in the past and fight for our liberties today. My administration will do whatever it can to give these heroes everything they deserve and that includes a final resting place that honors their service,” said Calvo.
