Steamboat 7th-grader raises money to buy headstones for veterans

Gone but not forgotten

Reina Salky, a seventh-grader at Steamboat Springs Middle School, learned that 11 military veterans buried in Steamboat didn’t have headstones. She decided to raise money to pay for headstones, like the ones issued by the VA, to replace white crosses at the gravesites now.
