Google Maps for Memorial Day

In recognition of Memorial Day, Virender Ajmani has created a series of Google Maps that commemorates the U.S. men and women who have died while in the military service.

National Cemeteries

If you wish to find your nearest national cemetery you should check out this Google Map. The map shows cemeteries which are maintained by Veterans Affairs, the National Park Service and the Army.

This map displays the number of deaths that each state in the USA has lost in the Iraq war.
