The Final Formation

By

Quantico Cemetery Gravesites

Yesterday my husband was at Quantico National Cemetery visiting the gravesites of several friends who have passed away. They are not men he served with in WWII, but men and women he and I have known while performing community service since we moved to the area. Like most veterans they were the type of people who felt a deep love of country and community continuing to contribute for years after serving our country in all branches of our armed forces.

While there he took photos for a brief slide show he entitled

"Pass In Review"
"America The Beautiful" was performed by The US Marine Band

Thank you Karen and Art for assembling the slide show of the Quantico veterans cemetary.  Your title of "The Final Formation" is a tribute in itself, Karen.

Just curious, what is the symbolism of the draped flag that covers the small oblisk to the left of the In Honor of All Veterans in your last picture?

Bruce  I have no idea - it is on a memorial path with no signage.  Here's another perspective

Very moving, Karen.  Your husband did a good job.  I had planned to do something similar at our local cemetery today because there are many veterans there and two large monuments honoring them.  Unfortunately, I was feeling ill this morning and didn't get out to the ceremony.  Thanks for sharing yours.
