Episode 58 - Veteran's Day 2021 and America's Cemetery in Hermitage, Pennsylvania

In this episode Jennie and Dianne pay homage to America's military veterans as they explore America's Cemetery and the Avenue of Flags in Hermitage, Pennsylvania.  Formerly known as Hillcrest Memorial Park, America's Cemetery honors veterans who have served in every American conflict since World War I. The avenue of flags was established in order to recognize the hostages during the Iranian Hostage Crisis from 1979 to 1981.  America's Cemetery has now become the final resting place to the cremains of hundreds of American soldiers and they are constantly working to become the final resting place to thousands of unclaimed veteran's cremains across the U.S. Join us for this special Veteran's Day edition of the Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery.
