  • Lived age 4-14 in Mound City. Rode or drove past cemetery frequently even rode school bus by cemetery daily when in High School. And briefly dated girl whose father was resident care taker. Inspired sense of honor and respect. After Army Office in Charge of at least a dozen veteran funerals while I was in Army, I learned more respect for Veteran Cemeteries. Mound City Veteran Cemetery is quiet and remote enough to maintain peace. I look forward to centuries my corpse rests in Mound City National Veteran's Cemetery.
  • I miss you Lonnie. Thank you for your services
