Obviously, it's a picture of a grave.

But whose grave?

Sadly it is the grave of Casey Sheehan.

After two years, and a DOD payment of $250,000 life insurance to Cindy Sheehan, the "Peace Mom", she has not had the time to be bothered to have a headstone placed on this young hero's grave.  And, she doesn't even have to pay for one, the DOD will provide one:

"The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a government headstone or marker for the grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world.  For all deaths occurring before September 11, 2001, the VA may provide a headstone or marker only for graves that are not marked with a private headstone.

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available.  The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial.  Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for internment of cremated remains."

She can find time to protest on at least 3 continents, get arrested various times, go on vacation in Hawaii, have photo op's with the Marxists in Venezuela and jesse jackson, but can't seem to find the time to properly mark her son's grave.

Oh, and cindy sheehan recently treated herself to a brand new Volkswagen Beetle.

But she can't be bothered to order a free grave marker for her son.
