  • This is a wonderful place to visit to understand the dedication of our Armed Forces Members and their families. It is a somber, but a very patriotic event for everyone.  more »
  • My parents and a brother are buried at FSHNC and I no longer live in town. So every once in awhile I get a chance to pay respects and on this occasion I was stunned by how nice every in the cemetery....  more »
  • Often visit to meditate, get inspired for my poem writing while sometimes sketching and taking pictures of the beauty seen in this place. Enjoying a lunch on a bench.. Upon occasion just stopping in to pay respects to random people where my inner heart tells me to leave a card for a person's family member. Respectfully, Amen.
  • I am so dam upset that everytime I take flowers or a flag to my husband some low life takes them. I had left him a personal flag of ours and it's was there since Tuesday I have not been here since Tuesday today is Friday I'm here and someone stole it. I don't know if it was taken when the Boy Scouts or whoever it was that came to collect the flags that they put out for Memorial Day! they also took the flag but if they did I would appreciate it if they would put it back. I know I can't prove it was them I can't prove who's doing this. this isn't the first time that this gets done to my husband and I don't understand why just him! here I thought I was putting him in a safe respectful Cemetery but it doesn't seem like that's the case. there's got to be a way that someone can monitor this things happening.
