Visit this peaceful place to honor those who served. They have a beautiful mass on Veteran's day in the fall.

A special place for those who served in the military. It is absolutely beautiful place. They have a kiosk to look up your loved ones location. Patriot plaza is a great place to go and walk around admiring the visual displays honoring our heroes.

We drove by it on our way to the National Park and decided to stop . The grounds were beautiful. It is a nice place to stop and pay your respect to the men and women who fought for our country.

I took my two young kids (8&2) out to the cemetery to pay their respects on Memorial Day weekend. The peace permeates the air. I want to know all the stories!

We stumbled upon this attraction by accident. We drove through the cemetery and got out to walk around, this place is very peaceful and humbling. Its worth checking out for an hour or two.
