Alliance cemetery honors Veterans

Posted: Updated:

An Alliance cemetery is finding special ways to honor veterans.

The Nebraska Veterans Cemetery is the first state Veteran Cemetery in Nebraska.

Local boy scouts and other school children spend time at the cemetery weekly, participating in projects that help out the community.

Administrator Allen Pannell says the state of the art facility is self–sufficient and just had its 100th internment.

Pannell says he believes it is truly important to celebrate our veterans.

"But we want to make sure the family knows that they are appreciated, the state of Nebraska appreciates the sacrifices the families have made and we want to make sure that we can give them as much honor as possible," says Pannell. 

Pannell invites anybody to come down and visit to see what the facility has to offer
