To Preserve and Honor… Ricky Gilliland III

  With all the recent controversies surrounding shoddy record-keeping at Arlington National Cemetery,  here’s a young man who made it his mission to document the final resting place for those troops who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Richard “Ricky” Gilliland III has made regular trips to Arlington Cemetery and from his photo documentation created a website, PreserveandHonor.com, where family and friends can locate the graves of their loved ones.
  What the government itself can’t seem to do, leave it to a teenager from Stafford, Virginia, who began this record-keeping project at the age of 17. Ricky’s goal is to join the U. S. Navy and I’m sure he’ll do well – he’s already proven to be a young man of initiative and dedication, signs of good things to come for his future as a leader.
  For more about Rick and his project, visit http://www.usa-patriotism.com/students/honor/hall/gilleland_r.htm and the website he created, http://preserveandhonor.com/
