A beautiful tribute to our fallen. Make sure you don’t miss the Goldstar memorial near the administrative building/funeral procession staging area. I was honored to have spent some time with a gold star mother and widow during my short visit there today. Touching. Humbling.
My father was recently buried here in October. He was a Vietnam Vet served in Navy. The service was amazing and beautiful tribute that all soldiers deserve. Beautiful Cemetery that’s peaceful displays nothing but honor to all our fallen.
