As a child we used to visit and clean the family plot every Memorial Day weekend.  I get very emotional seeing all the flags on Memorial Day that are put out for those who sacrificed their lives for our freedom!

Not on a regular basis Jeff Pearl . My father elected to be buried in the Veterans cemetery in Minneapolis MN and I've never visited his grave site strictly due to the distance (he passed on 20 years ago). My mother also chose to be buried a days drive away and I have visited her grave twice in 30 some years. We do visit some of my wife's relatives grave sites as they are within 10 miles of our home.

No but I think more people should so that they can see the enormity of loss (like at Arlington). Nothing like rows & rows of headstones to sink in on how many people gave their life for our country.

I would like to visit my father's gravesite at Fort Rosecrans, near San Diego, more often.  Distance is a challenge though.

I do not visit cemeteries around Memorial Day. I'm just not a fan of the seasonal participant.

I do visit loved ones who have passed more frequently than I should....I think.

That is quite a humbling view Jeff Pearl. There are few places that can stir emotions like Arlington National Cemetery. 

I like to stop by Zachary Taylor Cemetery, here, and visit my Great Uncle, Zachary Taylor, and the MOH Recipient. A former teammate of mine is also there and I have added him to the list.

Yes. We in the veteran organizations ensure each veteran grave has a flag. Then on Memorial Day we have cemetery services in the early morning with prayer and  21 gun salute

Not on Memorial Day. Your photo really does pull at the heartstrings, Jeff. I remember the first time I visited Arlington National Cemetary, I was overwhelmed with the number of grave sites - the rows seemed never-ending.
