    I am a 54 year old female who's dad was in the Army. .. He died when I was very young. (My mother kept his flag and a box of his medals but she would NOT let us children touch or view his things) in our teens she took us to Selfridge air base on many occasion, shopping and for medical sometime ...I asked her every year of my life for my dads burial information so I could put flowers on his grave, she stearnly refused to give anything. EVERY veteran day I feel a crush inside me as I mentally honor vets, but I can't honor my own ... Before I leave this earth I want to put flowers on his grave and talk with him a while. ....can somebody help me know what channels to do to find my dads burial place. (I live in detroit Michigan) email me [email protected]. Thank you

    There's a nationwide gravesite locator on the internet: gravelocator.cem.va.gov/ Good luck! Gae
