  • Undoubtedly, you should at least drive through. It's a beautiful cemetery, well-maintained, and inspires the reverence that, I'd say, is appropriate for a veteran cemetery.  more »
  • Although my father was cremated, it is still exquisite to see his military plaque at the cemetery, and good to go visit.  more »
  • Highly dissatisfied. My brother and sister in law drove from Wenatchee and I drove from Portland to place my Mom's ashes with my Dad's in a niche, and I left Portland 4 hours early for what was supposed to be a 2 hour 45 minute drive. I was 6 minutes late and the person who opened and closed the niche was lovely. The other person however made it a point to keep telling us how busy he was, hurry up, he's so busy... Wow. Talk about being disrespectful to a family who just lost their mom. He should not be working there if he doesn't have time to be kind to a bereaved family.
  • The visitation hours are great. They have an on-site grave locator, and the place is well kept. It's also not hard to find the locations of the grave sites you're looking for.
