My former husband and father of my children is interred here, so we visit the area periodically. I always find an elegant serenity here that is a great statement of appreciation for those who courageously served our county. Even if you have no one to "visit" there, it is a beautiful, peaceful place to be, and the views are unsurpassed.

Good to reflect on the service of our military personell. And, the views are indescribable: ocean on one side, bay on the other. I have family-members entombed here, and I am so grateful they are there.

Very sad place but nicely maintained and beautiful. WE did not stop on our way out to the point because my wife gets very emotional at military cemeteries.

Set on a cliff, over the Pacific Ocean. A fitting final resting place for so many brave men. Hard to look at all the graves without getting a little (or a lot) teary. Support our troops! Highly recommend!

This is a very powerful place. Best visit is during Memorial Weekend. Drive and see the Flag placed on each stone.

Such a loving resting ground for honored servants who gave their lives - Selfless Love in Action. A fittingly beautiful, peaceful place to show Respect & Gratitude for these lives not lived in vain.

Patriotic, sad and historical. Would recommend this leg of the tour for anyone who's never been to a National Cemetery. The view is extremely breathtaking!

With both my father and step-father being retired military and I having worked for the Department of Defense my whole career such national cemeteries have special meaning. Such a beautiful place for those who have fought for our country to be laid to rest.

Rows of those fallen that served our country with sweeping views and really well maintained grounds. Honor is given to these men and women and I for one area cite this
