From Civil war vets to current Day Vets, this is sacred ground. This cemetery is unique as unique individual headstones are allowed so it is not all white markers. There is even a railroad marker where the ashes of those killed in a tragic accident...More

We immediately saw the well manicured cemetery in route to the Zoo and thought how beautiful the grounds were kept, it reminded me of the Arlington National Cemetery but on a smaller scale. The way the white tombstones are laid out made us pay attention...More

Beautiful, somber and sobering. Stop stumbled upon the national cemetery by accident and the beauty drew us in. The short time spent driving thru brought a lot of things into perspective.

It is always humbling to remember, especially in these times of political rancor, that brave men and women paid with their lives for the freedoms we enjoy. This place of peace is a somber reminder.
