Wednesday's Child - Infant Havlen

I thought this was an interesting find in Woodlawn National Cemetery mainly because it was for a child in a military cemetery and because this infant had his or her own gravestone. The gravestone of the father was to the right of this stone. I have mainly seen family members on the back of the military gravestones, so this was unusual.
