Picturesque and very moving experience for our family. Definitely worth a drive up and to spend 30 minutes or more just taking in the experience.

This is the most beautiful cemetery I've even seen. The rows and rows of perfectly aligned white markers is a solemn reminder of the many veterans who give so much. It is a wonderful tribute to them and their families who serve our country.

My father is buried here so I know this place well. It is a beautiful location that you can see the ocean. They keep the grounds well maintained.
