You can’t help but feel a sense of reverence as you walk upon these hallowed grounds. It’s unbelievable how many people have dedicated their lives to the service of their country.
We rode the tourmobile around the cemetery to hear some of the stories about the people who are buried here.
We stopped at the usual places like the Eternal Flame and the Tomb of the Unknowns.
I was amazed at a steep hillside which held a large number of cenotaphs, headstones with no grave. These were memorials to those who went missing in action and are presumed to be dead, whose remains were never recovered.
I discovered the memorials to our two shuttle disasters, the Challenger and the Columbia. Several of the astronauts were buried nearby.over 5 years ago
