Seeing our soldiers who are no longer with us buried in such a uniform manner, was somber. It affords a feeling of gratefulness for their service and a reminder that we owe our freedom to all. This is a beautiful and interesting cemetery for any visitor, but especially to those with loved ones buried there.
This is the burial site of lots of our veterans. One in particular is the grave site of William O Darby a Fort Smith native son and the founder of the US Army's Darby Rangers.

We were in town to bury our brother. This cemetery is immaculate. The setting is one of silent revere. The grounds as well as the roads are very well kept. The grave markers are without stains.
A friend and I visited over Memorial Day weekend to pay respects to those we knew who had been buried there, men and women who were veterans of WWII. Flags were on all graves, and the large flag at the entrance was moving in a light breeze as we entered the grounds. The effect was sobering, to see so many... 更多
