The first time when they take their final breath, and the second time when their name is no longer spoken.
So we encourage everybody to go out, read the name on the stone, thank the veteran for what they have done for us."

Volunteers spent the morning unloading boxes of them from a full tractor trailer.
The boxes went into several pickup trucks..
