29. Has the government changed its position about not providing a VA headstone if a veteranís grave already has a headstone?

Yes. That rule has changed. Now, veterans who died since Sept. 11, 2001 can receive a VA headstone even if their graves already have a privately provided headstone. This change in the rules applies to everyone eligible for a VA headstone, including veterans, people who die on active duty and some reservists. The government will ship the headstone or marker free of charge, but it wonít pay for placement. VA will replace headstones and markers previously provided by the government if they are badly deteriorated, illegible, stolen or vandalized.
