Did you know that the coins you may have seen from time to time on Veterans gravestones have a specific meaning.
If you have ever been by a grave of an armed services veteran, you may have seen change laying on the gravestone. This is not some random thing, nor is it that someone disrespectfully dropt change there.
A penny indicates someone visited the grave.
A nickel indicates that the person went to basic trading with the deceased.
A dime indicates that the person served with the deceased after basic.
A quarter indicates that the visitor was with the deceased when they passed.
The money is periodically collected and used at the cemetery.
Now you know.
