Remembering Their Names

At a cemetery in Riverside, California, more than 300 volunteers have spent the last week reading aloud the names of the 148,000 veterans buried at Riverside National Cemetery.

The names are printed on pages - 2,465 pages, to be exact. Each name representing a life lost and a memory kept alive.

They read in shifts in the morning, in the hot sun, in the quiet darkness of night. They read the names so that others will remember.

Read their stories here.
