This local tribute to the men and women who served our country is very impressive! It is an interesting tour for anyone who has never been to a National Cemetary before.

My visit to the Sarasota National Cemetery brought me there to say Good Bye to a very dear friend. It is a beautiful place. The landscaping and upkeep is excellent. Interesting buildings which you can visit. Very tranquil.

The grounds here at Sarasota National Cemetery are lovely, so well maintained and a tribute to the care shown for veterans and their families. Be sure to visit the Patriot's Park center, which is a terrific monument to our many veterans. They have the set up well organized for funeral services that take place there. When you drive in the...

We stumbled upon this site while driving back from the East coast. This is a wonderfully done memorial and burial site for our men and women in uniform.

The cemetery and the new columbarium is a beautiful place for reflection. There are photos from every war posted around the columbarium which are a visual history lesson. If you go at Christmas, after placement of the wreaths by Wreaths Across America, you will experience an emotional event

This was a great idea to have a cemetery in the Sarasota area just east of I75. I have friends and family members buried there, the services they provide are memorable and the setting is beautiful. A great way to honor our veterans after they are gone.
