This most unusual marker is in Darlington Cemetery, in northern Maryland. The plaque reads:
Maude W. Bedford
In Performance of Her
Edgewood Arsenal, Md.
May 25, 1945
Her Fellow Workers
Mrs. Bedford and 11 co-workers where killed when two of the military base's grenade assembly buildings exploded. Edgewood Arsenal is part of a government facility now known as Aberdeen Proving Ground. More information is available about Mrs. Bedford here.
They are war heroes of a different type, but as just as important to our freedom.
