My Field Training Officer & I were out once again in our small town on patrol, & there's this rather foresty & historic lookin cemetary on the edge of our city that i've been curious about. It was a kick ass day out, and after some badgering I convinced him we should check out some old tomb stones. So off we went, and to our astonishment there were tons of veterans burried there. were talkin WWI - Vietnam. Welp, we were really getting into it and began to reset up some of the old little knocked down flags by these hero's tomb stones and cleared some sticks & dirt that had been sitting on their placks for god knows how long. I'm sure we were the only ones to pay 'em a visit in a loooooong time. It was quite humbling. Man, imagine the stories these guys could tell. God bless those guys!

That gives me an idea. Next time we visit the family at the cemetery, we'll stop by the Veteran's Land. Good idea to take the kids to see that.
