Ot 1st lt. Dustin Schimp, Community Relations Officer, says, "Lincoln Cemetery has a long and proud history with the city of Montgomery and a lot of ties with the community here so we felt this would be a really powerful way for us to both connect with the community in a really high visibility location and also pay our respects to the veterans who are buried here."
