Fort Snelling National Cemetery

Postby TomCofer » Sat Jun 03, 2017 6:11 am

While wandering around in Minnesota, we drove in to Fort Snelling National Cemetery. I can't describe the feelings it causes, seeing all the headstones. It has "over 225,000 interments".

The thing that always strikes me about the national cemeteries is their vastness and uniformity - so many lost, over so many generations and ages and wars. Thank you for showing us a sobering set of images.

National cemeteries cause mixed emotions for me, so many lost, but there's that sense of pride too for all they gave and the life the wanted us to have.

Thank you for sharing these! S-
