EL Paso Post 832 -Officers of the American Legion Colonel Louis A. Carter Post 832 recently undertook efforts to ensure that Veteran soldiers buried in El Paso’s historic Concordia Cemetery are never forgotten.

Concordia Cemetery is the final resting place for veterans of all United States Military Service Branches having served in conflicts and wars dating back to the early 19th century.

Every year the staff of Concordia Cemetery discovers numerous graves of Veterans that have served that are unmarked. In the spirit of “Americanism” Post 832 along with the 832 Legion Riders donated funds to sponsor headstones for eight unmarked Veteran graves in 2023. This generous donation will ensure that no Veteran from any era buried at the Concordia Cemetery is ever forgotten.

“When we heard the tragic news about how many of our brothers and sisters in arms that have served lie in unmarked graves, we without a doubt knew that we had to step up and support this cemetery. The members of our Post have committed themselves to make sure that no veterans are ever forgotten”

- Carl Dwyer Post 832 Judge Advocate
