May they rest in blessed peace, no matter their origin or battle fought, in peacetime or in war. I am forever grateful for their duty.

The caretaker team at Fort Snelling cemetery do an outstanding job. My grandfather, two uncles and father are buried there.

I have two brothers interred at Ft. Snelling. My wife and I will be there some day. The folks there do an excellent job. God Bless them All!

I am always in awe when I visit one of our national cemetaries. It is a time for reflection of how much so many have given to preserve our country and our freedom. May they all rest in a peace that has been hard earned.

Ft. Snelling is a beautiful place. My wife's remains were interred there six months ago. I think the author misses the point though. Memorial Day honors the dead; Veterans Day honors all veterans alive and dead.

My Father and Mother rest on the Row of Honor in Fort Snelling. Their greatness as members of the military family were at the very center of their lives. Duty, Honor, Country. To Families of all people that longed to be free. In the USA and for all the peoples of the world. That is what our military stands for.
