Very emotional and also peaceful. We sit by my parents graves and while talking to them, watch the planes take off and land. Thinking of all the times I flew out to see them.

The cemetery is a must for those who love this sort of thing. It was moving when reading some of the headstones. A surreal place.

This cemetery is huge, bigger than we expected. We went to see grave of someone we knew, it's a moving and emotional place. It was covered in snow but still worth the visit. Very peaceful despite being close to airport. Well worth a visit.

The headstones seem to go on forever. It is a peaceful place. If you take the tram from Minneapolis to the Mall of America you go past Fort Snelling. In winter it was quite bleak but serene.

I visit family grave sites every year. It is overwhelmingly beautiful even though so many loved ones are buried here. Wonderful Memorial Day program every year.

I was visiting the Twin Cites when I saw this cemetery from the light rail. It looked so impressive with all the gravestones lined up perfectly in all directions - vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. This national cemetery looks like it is very well taken care...More

My son is in the boy scouts and were able to volunteer to remove the wreathes when they were expired. I got a bit nervous that they wanted the kids removing all these because I wanted respect shown for each grave, and not have the...More
