Andrea Keller Helsel emailed highlighting threats to our National Cemeteries as discussed Tuesday in Congressional testimony before the House Committee on Veteran’s Affairs.

Andrea’s with the National Parks Conservation Association, and they’ve issued a press release on this subject. They’re urging that Congress adopt a budget which includes a US$200 Million increase in Park funding for FY2008 (begins October 2007).

Take action to do what you can to help, won’t you? You could start by signing the online petition.
