The following information is provided by National Cemetery of the Pacific:
This is a reminder to veterans and next of kin who have loved ones buried in the National Cemetery of the Pacific that potted plants and artificial flowers may be placed at gravesites beginning Thursday, July 12, 2012, in honor of O-Bon.
They will be removed on Thursday, August 16, 2012, and all prematurely placed items will be removed.
Please note that permanent plantings, statues, vigil lights, glass objects of any kind, and any other types of commemorative items, including photographs, toys (pin wheels, balloons, stuffed toys, and similar articles) are not permitted. Floral items and other decorations may not be secured to headstones or markers. Metal hooks may not be used to secure potted plants or other decorations as they present safety hazards during mowing operations.
