  • My father is a veteran and still alive. My mother passed away 5 years ago today. She's buried there. It's absolutely beautiful! They take such good care of this place and the wreath they put on there last year for Christmas was just amazing. It was on every grave donated and put on by volunteers braving the cold weather. Thank you! Everyone from caretakers to volunteers to the united states armed forces. We all appreciate everything you do, immensely!
  • A sense of the sacredness of this place overcomes you as soon as you enter the grounds. And a thankfulness and reverence for the sacrifice the men and women buried here made for their country and all who followed since soon seeps into your consciousness.
