30,000 Veterans Buried in Columbus' Green Lawn Cemetery

May 28, 2007

Columbus's Green Lawn Cemetery has about 30,000 veterans buried on its grounds. Every year volunteers try as best they can to decorate all the graves of service men and women with an American flag. The process starts several days in advance.

"Anybody see Morton Kevall?"

"How are you spelling it?"

"It's down the middle there."

Last Friday Al Tyroler was using a checklist and a map to help find graves that needed to be honored, something he says he's been doing for the past 53 years. He and Joe Cohen are members of Capital Post 122 - Jewish War Veterans.
