This isn't for a story, it is more curiosity about a family thing.

My Dad's uncle died in 1970. Dad says his grave marker was provided by the VA. Uncle had served in WW2 and Korea.

My question has to do with why it would say Texas on his marker. He was born in MN and lived almost his entire adult life in AZ. I thought the state named on a military marker showed their home state.

Any insights?
