Guam - The Veterans Affairs Office could get some much needed help to beef up security at Veterans Cemetery in Piti. Administrator John Unpingco says the office is waiting on the National Cemeteries Association to provide them with $175,000 that would be used to purchase security alarms for the Piti cemetery that was burglarized last month. 

Unpingco says the funding would also be used to purchase new equipment such as bushcutters. "We had told them about the cemetery break in and they allocated $175,000 for maintenance and upgrade of the cemetery - we haven't gotten the grant yet but we hope to," he said.

Meanwhile the office is utilizing $300,000 in ARRA funding to renovate the cemetery and install special lighting.
