  • Its beautiful and they keep it sharp! Great place to have any veteran lay to rest.
  • This is my dads resting place. The service was nice, quite different than a regular funeral though. Every Funeral I ever went to, we drive up to the grave and the coffin is lowered. This cemetery is NOT like that. The hole isn't even dug. It's like an assembly line there. One service every 10 min. I was upset I never got to see his casket go in the ground. I think this cemetary should change this policy. People want to see their loved one put in their final resting spot. NOT, PUT somewhere till the hole is dug? WHAT guarantee do I have he is actually there? Also they have a mean policy with flowers. CHRISTMAS TIME. I PUT ONE TINY potted ornamental tree on his grave. Nd when I took my mother there the next day to show her, the grounds staff came by nd Threw it away. They dont allow any living thing of beauty on the grave. Wish I knew this before he died. But, it is a nice resting spot. I gave it only 3 stars cause of the NO FLOWERS, PLANTS, NO GRAVESIDE SERVICE.
