We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

What is a"V" Veteran?
Apparently many contributors have difficulty with what a veteran is, since Find a Grave added this option in 2023.

Not everyone who has put on the uniform, which includes the National Guard and Reserves or those military personnel who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, are considered veterans.

* The term "veteran" means a person who served
in the active military, naval, or air service, and
who was discharged or released therefrom
under conditions other than dishonorable.

* To be considered a veteran in the National Guard or Reserves, a person must be federally activated by the President of the United States and serve a minimum of a 180 days.

* To be considered a veteran in the National Guard or Reserves, who were not federally activated, must serve a minimum of 20 years.
Same rules of discharge apply as mentioned above.

Military personnel with no prior military service and never discharged, who paid the ultimate sacrifice while on active duty, are not considered veterans.

* Duplications eventually get merged.

* If an obituary exists in the bio, what's the point of adding a newspaper clipping of the same obituary.
For people visually impaired, an obituary in the "Bio," is easier to read than a newspaper clipping. You can highlight the Bio.

* "Find a Grave" has become a self-contradictory website since the addition of non-burial options.
"Burial Details Unknown," is a good example.
The rule for this particular option is just as contradictory.
Find a Grave suggests you shouldn't use this option, but it's still available.

In my opinion, these options should only apply to genealogical research websites, such as Ancestry or FamilySearch, not Find a Grave.

* Please don't attach death certificates, marriage or census records to the memorials I manage.
Anyone can download these documents from Ancestry.com or Familysearch.org, for their own personal research.
Memorials look best when kept simple and uncluttered.

* Contributors need to pay attention when adding photos or documents to memorials.
All picture files automatically default to "Grave."
The contributor must choose the appropriate designation as indicated, "Person," "Family" or "Other."
Documents and newspaper clippings are designated as "Other."
