  • I have been to memorial service here. It was very moving. It is an experience that every American should have and ingrained in their psyche.  more »
  • Sad to think that war has claimed so many lives, here and everywhere. Does remind one of Arlington. A short walk can be very movingl  more »

  • Very nice cemetary. They take great care in honoring our loved ones.
  • As I understand it, this cemetery began with the casualties from the Civil War Battle of Glorieta Pass, but the older section predates this and is the final resting place of individuals such as Charles Bent who was NM's first (territorial) Governor killed in Taos (which is an interesting/tragic story related to relations of all of NM's major groups in the early days). As it is a National Ceremony, it is now filled with likely all sort of stories about the individuals making the ultimate sacrifice in service of their county, up to the present. The individuals who work there seem very cognizant and protective of those who are in a sense in their care for perpetuity. No one I know or am related to is buried there, that I know of, only a Medal of Honor recipient from my hometown. It does seem like a nice final resting spot, and like the individuals there are in good company.
