UCLA Veterans Resource Center Cleans the Headstones of Our Fallen Veterans

Veterans' Resource Center
The Veterans' Resource Center for UCLA organized an event with USC and the LA National Cemetery to clean the headstones of our fallen veterans. The program featured over 300 UCLA students and community members to completely clean 20,000 headstones (a 1/4 of the total headstones).
The event, which was organized in collaboration with USC, expanded the annual volunteer day to honor veterans by helping clean headstones at the Los Angeles National Cemetery.
After the headstones were sprayed with an environmentally friendly enzyme, participants were asked to scrub them for 20-30 seconds with water and brush. The enzyme did the rest of the work.
