QR Label Gives Miramar Cemetery Visitors
Link to Carillon Tower Stories, Video
(Jan. 26, 2018) Many businesses use QR labels to give their customers information about their products or services. Now, that same technology can be used to read stories and view videos about the Veterans Tribute Tower & Carillon at Miramar National Cemetery.
A QR label is attached to a granite monument at the base of the Carillon Tower. To access information from the QR label, open the QR scanner on your cell phone, and hold it in front of the label affixed to the monument. Scan it, and the link to the information will open.
Accessible through the QR link is a story about the Korean War Battle of Outpost Harry in June 1953. The Tower is dedicated to the memory of those who fought in that battle. Also included is a biographical sketch of Bob Baker, whose family foundation was a major contributor to the $400,000 Tower project, and who is a veteran of Outpost Harry.
The QR link includes a story about the Carillon dedication on Nov. 11, 2016, with sidebar features about the music and chimes played by the Carillon, and a video showing the Tower being erected. There’s also a story about the granite benches installed for visitors to the Tower.
Don’t have a QR scanner on your cell phone? You also can access the website at www.miramarcemetery.org/carillon.
The Miramar National Cemetery Support Foundation sponsors the Veterans Tribute Tower & Carillon, the Avenue of Flags, and other memorials and patriotic events at the cemetery.
