Caltrans will soon install freeway signs directing San Diegans to the Miramar National Cemetery, it was announced Monday.
The signs—which come after requests were filed by Fort Rosecrans and Miramar National Cemetery Support Foundation—will be installed off Interstate 805.
“Cemeteries are not just a place where heroes go to rest, cemeteries are a place where we as citizens go to celebrate our freedom," said Rocky Chavez, former acting Secretary California Department of Veterans Affairs and candidate for State Assembly. "It’s only appropriate that signs point people in the right direction.”
According to legislators, the signs will be installed in six weeks.
