Has the permission been granted for the Memorial Stone to be installed at Arlington National Cemetery?
The Memorial Stone is being offered as a gift, and STONEWALK is the journey to bring this gift of honor to Arlington National Cemetery. In this spirit, we are not asking permission to present this gift. There is a place at Arlington National Cemetery for the Memorial Stone, and the best place is outside the Amphitheater near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Two of the co-sponsoring organizations, Veterans for Peace and Women’s Action for New Direction, are working with legislators to obtain an Act of Congress allowing the Memorial Stone to be placed in Arlington. So while approval has not yet been received, we are proceeding with full confidence that our government will honor the civilian victims at Arlington National Cemetery.
