  • This is a place to pay respect. All are welcome to visit. There are large trees for shade. You can come and reflect on life and the lives of those around you.
  • This is an open to the public National Cemetery for members of United States of America military and should be taking with reverence for the military members themselves and for their families. Please don't abuse this beautiful cemetery or what it stands for, if you want to go to a quiet place to take glamor shots or a creepy cemetery on Halloween etc. go find somewhere else, don't be tacky and disgrace the memory of our fallen comrades in arms. I say all this as a military veteran myself and with hopes that you will fallow my lead with the respect I've used in asking you to not abuse our beautiful site. Thank you.
