For the next two days, LCM will be accepting donations to benefit the No Stone Left Unturned organization, whose mission is to give as many military headstones as possible to Veterans.

This organization was started by Lee Pelly, founder and CEO, in July 2013 after seeing a news report that there were lack of headstones for Veterans.

“There’s no telling how many headstones need to be placed,” Pelly said. “We haven’t put a dent in it yet, but we’re doing the best we can, and we just need people to know that we’re here and know that we can help.”

Many veterans are in unmarked graves because families cannot afford the cost to have the stones set and are unable be covered by the federal government unless they are in a national cemetary. Through the 4th period classes, students will be invited to make a donation to benefit this organization.

“We thought doing this drive also would bring awareness to this organization and their cause,” Activities Director Stacey Smith said.

Pelly is driven by respect, not just for the Veterans and their family, but for his grandfather who served in the Pacific Theater in World War II.

“They’re all heroes to me,” Pelly said. “I want them to have their due. They earned it. They deserve it.”
