On an errand after school today the Chattanooga National Cemetery
caught me eye. I drove through the cemetery in awe of its beauty and all it represents. My maternal grandparents are buried there, as well as Kevin's grandmother.
The cemetery holds the remains of veterans from the Revolutionary War to the Gulf War and 186 graves of German prisoners-of-war from both World Wars. The park-like setting includes 121 acres of land, making it the largest cemetery in the state. With more than 37,000 interments presently, the cemetery is near capacity and scheduled to close to new interments in 2015. Only veterans, their wives and families may be buried here.
(As stated on the Cemetery's website.)
God Bless America
