Merrick Cemetery - St. Bernard Parish

"In this video Captain Robert Lansden visits this cemetery in July of 2007 (two years since the hurricane) and witnesses firsthand the negligence that these silent victims have suffered. Veterans of WWII, Korea and Vietnam rest in this cemetery. Now there resting place is in need of restoration. Graves and tombs that were cracked and thrown about by the wall of water that surged during Hurricane Katrina need to be repaired. Years later many graves still lie scattered, misplaced and broken. Many of their remains lie unmatched or unidentified. This video will list many of them that have been identified. You can help. Contact Captain Robert Lansden at (985) 370-9006 to assist in honoring those who served. Thank you."
