Touching and peaceful. This was the first National Cemetery that my wife had seen. It is not overwhelmingly large. Just off downtown, this final resting place of for our fallen is important to see. Listen to "Taps" played in the evening and reflect.

It is nice to see our veterans honored in this well kept cemetery. Enjoyed driving though and reading some of our country's history, and educational for children.

We have been traveling the country and try to visit any National Cemetery. This one was smaller compared to others we have seen, but worth the stop.

I find that our National Cemeteries and National Battlefields become Peace Parks. The cemeteries honor all our veterans. The battlefields take places of sadness and make them beautiful

This is such a peaceful and humbling drive thru. If this doesn't stir your heart for those who gave their life for your freedom.... I don't know what will.

Lovely decorated cemetery. We felt the love & reverence of our departed soldiers. We had our twin 5yo's to educate about our history.
