A military veterans memorial at a Monroeville cemetery will be dedicated May 18.

The Catholic Cemeteries Association of the Diocese of Pittsburgh will dedicate the veterans memorial starting at 1 p.m. at a Good Shepherd Cemetery plot, located at 733 Patton St.

Members of the public are invited to attend and several local veterans organizations will participate in the service, which will be led by the Rev. Albert L. Zapf of the Monroeville and Penn Hills church groupings.

The memorial theme is “Faith, Country and Family.” It will include etchings in granite depicting scenes from several wars.

There also will be an honor roll of names on which families can choose to have the names of loved ones inscribed.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
