Atlantic City, New Jersey

New Jersey's Lighthouses:  The lighthouse is one of the most popular images to appear on headstones in America's cemeteries, and New Jersey (with its long coastline) is a logical place to find them. Sometimes the images are of the generic variety; sometimes they represent real lighthouses. Probably the most important symbol on this marker, however, is the fighter aircraft. Underneath, it says Tuskegee Airmen. A legend lies buried here, a beacon of bravery. Atlantic City Cemetery. [2016]
