Geocache Description:

Locate the resting place of one of approximately 3400 Americans who have received the nations highest award for valor: The Congressional Medal of Honor.

The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor has been awarded to approximately 3400 men and one woman. Find the final resting place of a recipient of the Medal of Honor. To properly log your find: coordinates must be provided, a photograph of the medal recipient's grave marker and your gps must be taken. No memorial markers; therefore, photographs must be of the final resting place of the recipient of the medal. Please provide the location of the cemetery. One log per person, a resting place can be logged only once. The tombstone in the illustration may be logged by the first finder.

October 7, 2002 update. There have been questions raised about the legality of photography in national cemeteries. We have asked the VA for clarification, and here is their response:

"The taking of photographs in a national cemetery for private or commercial purposes may be permitted on the condition that the use of sale of such photographs will not detract from the dignity and reverential atmosphere of the cemetery. Please contact the cemetery office for permission. Additionally, care should be taken not to invade the privacy of the next of kin through publication of any photographs showing the name of individual grave markers. Family photographs of headstones are fine. Bob Kline System Coordinator"
