It was our honor to drive through this National Cemetery. The wreaths on each grave and at the base of every tree are a beautiful tribute to those who served our country.

Smaller than many but interesting to walk or drive around and look at old and new markers. I would ask if there are any famous people buried there. I think there is and we forgot to do that.

They are releveling and redoing the grass between the gravestones so this visit wasn't the best. I got some pictures, though.

Lots of civil war graves as well as grave of the ‘hanging judge’, Isaac C. Parker (section 9, grave 4000). Way to many Unknown Soldiers, hard to imagine for any family.

A bunch of us rode our motorcycles down to the Fort Smith National Cemetery last December for the Laying of the Wreaths. It was very inspiring hearing the speeches and seeing all of the beautiful wreaths decorating all the graves.
