"Richmond is home to the largest, Jewish military cemetery, outside of Israel."

Background on the construction of the monument. This *granite block is one of eight originally used as floor supports, evenly spaced, running from front to back in a line down the building's center, visible in the basement dressing rooms of the Marshall / Richmond Theatre, 7th and Broad Street, Richmond, Virginia.

Another one of these granite blocks was used on the Whitehall Monument which has my grandfather's words on the back.
