Mare Island Naval Cemetery: What we can do to help!
In our backyard - the final resting place of American heroes lies in ruins. The broken gate leads to fallen and broken tombstones. It is a disgrace and defiles their memory and sacrifice made for all Americans!
Congressmen Mike Thompson and Mark Takano visit the cemetery. Read the story here.

The best kept tomb- stones are of Russian sailors who died fighting the 1906 San Francisco Fire.
What you can do: Support Diane Feinstein's S. 127 and Mike Thompson's H.R. 578 to require the VA to maintain the cemetery. Contact your VFW & American Legion and get involved!
