HEADSTONE AT A VETERANS GRAVE SITE IN HARTFORD SOLDIER'S FIELD PROPPED UP WITH 2X4'S
It seems pretty obvious that very little supervision or accountability is going on in Hartford City government. Most of it we have just become accustomed to and seem to accept, but one thing that is inexcusable and I can't tolerate or accept is disrespecting our veteran's who have served and some have actually died for us.
I have received several calls about the condition of Hartford's cemeteries ,Northwood's and Soldiers Field in particular . Gravestones falling over. some, like the one above propped up with lumber, lawns not mowed, weeds overgrown. Totally disrespectful to the deceased buried there as well as their families and loved ones.
The veterans headstones don't look like they have been cleaned in ages and are filthy. It just disgusts me that no City official can drive through and find this unacceptable.
HARTFORD'S SOLDIER'S FIELD
The sad part though is that if you drive three or four miles up I-91 to the Windsor veterans cemetery, the cemetery is maintained almost like Arlington National Cemetery. MY father is buried there and I appreciate the condition. The lawns are always mowed , the monuments are upright and they are regularly pressure washed why does Hartford deserve or tolerate such disrespect. It is just not right and we deserve so much better for our veterans.
Something is seriously wrong when we maintain rose gardens better than the final resting place for our veterans that have served our country
ABOVE-WINDSOR VETERANS CEMETERY, IN CASE ANYONE NEEDS TO KNOW HOW IT SHOULD LOOK, NOTICE THE LACK OF 2 X 4'S HOLDING THE MARKERS UP
