Veterans Honor our Young Men and Women who gave their lives for their Country in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier.
There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends. They put up this graveyard and
take it down every weekend.
Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it.
Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.

This originated around 2003 and I can't find anything that supports its validity, but by the same token I can't find anything that disproves it. I also can't find any information regarding its continued practice.

True or untrue...it is a nice gesture.
