The National Cemetery Administration (NCA), a part of the Department of Veterans Affairs, and Save Outdoor Sculpture! (SOS!), are partnering to undertake a project to inventory and document for the first time an estimated 300 major monuments dedicated to fallen soldiers. The monuments are located in more than 100 NCA cemetery properties across the country. NCA will provide volunteers with inventory forms and instructions, cemetery maps, and 35mm film. Volunteers will be required to take photographs and measurements and perform some basic research. Volunteers will be responsible for supplying their own 35mm cameras, the cost of film development, and personal transportation.
The inventory project starts in Spring 2002, with data collection to be completed by September. Upon completion of the project, the information will be publicly accessible on-line through the Smithsonian's American Art Museum. To sign up or learn more about this project, visit the NCA website at www., or contact Sara Amy Leach, Historian, National Cemetery Administration, Department of Veterans Affairs, 810 Vermont Avenue, NW (402B4), Washington, D.C. 20420, or e-mail [email protected] The deadline for contacting NCA to volunteer is 8 May 2002.
