Money in the Fund is to be granted for the operation and maintenance of monuments as designated by

administration, operation, maintenance and completion of monuments and memorials dedicated to
Pennsylvania veterans and military units in Ft. Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, American battle
monuments located overseas that are owned by the Commonwealth, Pennsylvania unit monuments and
markers in Gettysburg National Military Park and other Pennsylvania military memorials and monuments
