Veterans for Peace will be displaying more than 6,000 tombstones from dawn tomorrow through dusk on Memorial Day on Eighth Avenue just east of 34th street in Gainesville. Donna Green-Townsend talked with Vets for Peace coordinator Scott Camil about how this display was arranged to remember those who have died in the wars in Afghanistan since 2001 and in Iraq since 2003.
