Cleaning headstones at the Fredericksburg National Cemetery
The Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park says volunteer Aaron shared this photo as he worked to clean head stones in the National Cemetery. With more than 8,000 acres to care for, keeping up with maintenance in the park is a big job. The Park Service says they’re grateful to volunteers like Aaron who take the time to lend a hand.
Before setting out to clean headstones, volunteers have the opportunity to train with the park’s preservationist to ensure that they do not create damage during the cleaning process.
