Ralph McKinney of the Marine Corps League uses a pressure washer to clean a veteran headstone at Mountview Cemetery on Tuesday, September 10. About five members of the league were out as part of a cleaning project started three years ago by World War II veteran Bill VanWieren. VanWieren, a 96-yearold Marine Corps veteran, can no longer actively help clean, but is gratified that the project continues. "I started it, but it is nice to see them keep it going," he said Tuesday.
