Weston, West Virginia (November 2011) – On Wednesday, November 9, employees of Stonewall Resort commemorated Veterans Day by placing United States flags on gravestones located on the grounds of Stonewall Jackson Lake State Park, resort officials announced.

Mike Hager, general manager for Stonewall Resort, said, “We felt it both appropriate and a privilege to honor those veterans buried on the State Park grounds in recognition of Veterans Day.  Some of the deceased served as far back as the Civil War and Spanish-American War.”

Hager said there are four graveyards, containing the graves of 88 veterans, on the State Park grounds.
