Honoring Veterans

Yesterday I was driving towards the Marietta Square to donate some clothes and home items to the Salvation Army. I decided to take the back way on Washington Street, and when I looked left down Cole Street, this is what I saw.

The sight of these beautiful evergreen wreaths laid out at each headstone really moved me. This is a military cemetery with graves dating back to the Civil War, and it is a kind of relief to know that someone is still around that cares enough about these servicemen to decorate their graves at Christmas.

For more information on the Marietta National Cemetery, take a look at these sites:
