With Utmost Respect

It's very comforting when I go and visit my brother and sister veterans to know that their final resting place is well taken care of. It's also in such a peaceful location.
I go near here often, but don't visit as often as I should.
When I visited this time, the fall weather was in full bloom. The maintenance crews were trimming the grass. You couldn't find a stray leaf anywhere.
 At one time there were 217 Japanese soldiers from WWII buried here. Although they were enemies at the time of their death, their memorial and grounds are as well kept as the rest of the grounds.
Thanks to all who care take our veterans and their final resting places. It makes me fell very comfortable knowing that this peaceful place is available to myself and other veterans.
