More than 1,000 volunteers teamed up to clean Houston National Cemetery for 9/11 Day of Service

We will never forget the memory of fallen soldiers who gave their lives for the U.S. and as part of 9/11 Day of Service, more than 1,000 volunteers spent their Saturday cleaning up the Houston National Cemetery.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the greater Houston area and its volunteer service arm, JustServe joined together at 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday, along with the veteran’s charity group, Carry The Load to participate in the cleanup.

Volunteers worked on painting faces and structures as well as cleaning and straightening headstones, leaving flowers, and picking up debris.

“I think what struck me is the sheer volume,” said volunteer Camille Leatham on the clean-up attendance. “I’m doing a little service, but [fallen veterans] gave so much.”
