Labor Struggles/History

WW1 veterans William J. Hushka and Eric Carlson, killed when Eisenhower & McArthur cleared out the Bonus Expeditionary Force (Bonus Army); see also Bonus Expeditionary Force (Camp Marks), Bonus Expeditionary Force U.S. Capitol Protest & Bonus Expeditionary Force (Camp Glassford).

DIRECTIONS: Best bet is to go to the Visitor Information Center and ask for a map to graves 2262 and 5217 in Section 18; then you can walk in (about 20 min) or drive (5 min) and they'll give you a free parking pass and visitor's pass for your car, which is required, and follow the directions on the map.

SPECIFIC DIRECTIONS: follow Eisenhower Drive, go right on Porter, left on Grant and left on Clayton; this is Section 18. To find HUSHKA, look on the West side on Clayton for Row D1, which begins with Francis J. Schmitz; Hushka is the 8th grave back. To find CARLSON, look on the East side of Clayton for the row which begins with James A Latham; Carlson is the 17th grave.
