Generous Donation Paves the Way to Honor Fallen Heroes

Great Lakes National Cemetery

Signal Restoration Co-CEO Frank Torre’s generous donation to the Great Lakes National Cemetery, located in Holly, Michigan, North of Detroit, was in honor of his father, Frank Torre Sr., a World War II veteran who served in the U.S. Marine Corps.

Upon hearing that neither Oakland County nor its Road Commission had funds in their budget to pave the road leading into the Great Lakes National Cemetery, the Signal executive donated the funds needed to pave Belford Road.

The Great Lakes National Veterans Cemetery acknowledged this generosity by naming a Belford Road section Cpl Frank Torre, Sr. Drive.

In recognition of the dedication and service of Pfc. Frank Torre Sr; the cemetery erected a plaque to celebrate his heroic achievements and commemorate our nation’s military heroes’ many sacrifices.

The road section, known as “PFC Frank Torre Sr. Drive”, crosses the “Avenue of Flags” at the entrance to the Great Lakes National Veterans Cemetery.

The Great Lakes National Veterans Cemetery is supported by the Great Lakes National Cemetery Advisory Council, which supports volunteer veteran service organizations with assistance from the Department of Defense funeral honors team.
