This is a very good service... you will not find all military gravesites (even some you know exists), but you can find a surprising number. I entered my ancestor Leonard Wheatley that I have visited his grave with his Revolutionary War marker... just to see if he would be listed. He was number 1 of several buried in Old Axel Cemetery in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. I entered cousins who were brothers and died in the last 10 years or so. I had decorated their graves for Memorial Day at Oak Hill Cemetery (Evansville, IN). Both Charles & Gilbert Witty were listed! However, I entered four other men that had military markers that were not listed - 2 for Civil War & 2 for Revolutionary War. I was impressed to know that this service was as good as it is! - JGWest
