No Headstone Problems At SD National Cemeteries

RAPID CITY, SD -
An audit by the Department of Veterans Affairs found no incorrectly placed headstones at the three national cemeteries in western South Dakota's Black Hills.
The VA reviewed dozens of cemeteries across the country last year after an internal Army investigation found more than 200 unmarked or misidentified graves at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. Problems were found at cemeteries in half a dozen states.
An audit late last year found no problems at the Black Hills, Fort Meade and Hot Springs national cemeteries. The director for the cemeteries, Bill Haggerty, says it took about 40 hours to do the inspection.
