While not the closest national cemetery, it was the one I wanted my Navy Dad, and my Mom, to be at rest. They worked seamlessly with the mortuary counselor to make it happen. Made sure we had Navy honor guard and bugler. Beautiful place.

A great view along with quiet, this is a very unusual and touching place to visit. Beautiful views and a great roadway with a lot of history.

This is a must stop for our family since we have several members interred here. It is the most peaceful and beautiful spot in the US. A true testimony to those who have served and given their lives for a bigger cause.
