Maui Veterans Cemetery to get makeover from $1.1M grant


The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a $1.1 million grant to improve the appearance of Maui Veterans Cemetery in Makawao.

The funds will be used to raise, realign and clean 1,554 headstones at the cemetery and also improve the facilities, including some 132,000 square feet of grass, U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz’s office said.

“I am committed to ensuring that our veterans and their families are honored for their services, and that their sacrifices for our nation are remembered long after they have passed,” Schatz said.
