BATES TOWNSHIP—Bates Township will be erecting a veterans memorial at the Bates Township Cemetery, scheduled for unveiling on Memorial Day 2013.
Veterans buried at the cemetery will have their names and military service information engraved on the granite memorial.
The township is asking the public to advise the Bates Township Veterans Memorial Committee of any known veterans who are buried at the cemetery but do not have a marker identifying them as veterans.
In addition, if anyone is aware of a veteran buried at Bates Cemetery whose military service information is incorrectly engraved on his or her marker, please also notify the veterans committee.
The committee can be reached by calling Committee Chairman Paul DeNicola at (906) 265-9655.
