This place is very new and beautiful. I was very impressed with the place. The man giving us information was very helpful. I'm sure at holiday time it will be beautiful like Arlington is.

A newer cemetery for military veterans. There is an area where ceremonies are held on national holidays. If you have never witnessed a military funeral and one is taking place you should RESPECTFULLY watch it. It's quite moving.

This was our first visit. We were there for the dedication of the Blue Star Memorial A beautiful resting place for veterans and spouses. Hope some day we won't need a facility like this. A well designed and built cemetery.

We visited this Veterans Cemetery to decide if this was where we wanted to be buried. My husband is a Navy Veteran and wants to be buried in a VA Cemetery. We will definitely be buried here. It is new but beautiful and peaceful.

They are having a ceremony on Saturday at 11 am - Brigadier General Gerald McIlmoyle (US Airforce, retired) will be speaking. There will be a band as well.

Thank you for stating what this cemetery is for. Attraction is not one of the words that I would subscribe to this hallowed ground.
