Bobbi - Is it a government issued stone? Is it recent or more than 50 years old? If it is an older government stone I'm afraid there is not much you can do. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs "historic headstones (those greater than 50 years of age) will not be replaced to correct inscription inaccuracies based on modern research".
