A veterans cemetery in GG?

Memo to Garden Grove leaders: Orange County could become home to a veterans cemetery if a bill introduced by Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva passes through the legislature.

Assembly Bill 1453, introduced by Quirk-Silva, D-Fullerton, earlier this month, would direct the state’s Department of Veteran Affairs to build the cemetery, which would then be state owned and operated.

Honorably discharged veterans along with their spouses and children would be eligible for burial in the cemetery.

What better place for such a cemetery than Garden Grove, which has a robust history of citizens serving in our military?
