They sleep, row by row, by row.
Spanish American War
World War One
Battles on the Frontier
So many from World War II.
We did not get to the section from Korea, but I know they are there.
And the wars since in the Mideast.
Wives are there too, as I will be, one day.
There are some large stones scattered throughout.
There are five Medal of Honor Recipients from the Civil War who are buried here.
The same plaque tells about the National Home.
The cemetery is 110 acres.
From the hill you could look over into Mount Muncie.
This looks like a mausoleum, but I suspect it is a holding crypt.
We didn't get very close to it, it was just so cold and windy.
This beautiful obelisk is on the highest point. Around it are buried many of the
governors of the Soldier's Home, also doctors who worked there.
And a carillon that rings out all day.
The graves marched downhill.
And up and across the hills. There were huge old trees in the older part of the cemetery.
In the newer sections, only saplings were growing.
Keith was very moved, as was I.
It is pretty breathtaking.
