The new National Cemetery at the VA complex was full of people, tents, a high-ranking general or two, the media and many veterans as the boys and I took our walk this morning. This is the first Memorial Day at this new place so it was an event, but it made me wonder what was happening at the old cemetery.
After the walk, I drove through the complex and over the river to find out.
There weren't many people, though every stone had a flag, and many had fresh flowers. My photo is just a very small glimpse of the more modern section (Vietnam, Middle East); in another area to the left are the upright gravestones from the other wars that go back to WWI.
I was glad to see no one was forgotten...
