Project Profile:

Los Angeles National Cemetery

Project Summary

There are 32,000 flat markers on the closed cemetery and they have reinforced 16,000 of them to date. Bill Livingston (Director) has received donations for much of the work. Some of the markers are close together and have strips of GP2, while others have blocks of reinforcement just under and around the marker. Bill gave us a copy of the power point presentation he uses to show others what they are doing to improve the stability of the markers using our GP2.
