While we were in St. Louis we visited
Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery
we went to visit my mother-in-love's gravesite
and to take in the beauty of this final resting place
for those who have served our country (and their spouses).
Sitting on the banks of the Mississippi River,
this National Cemetery is serene -
and evokes many emotions
and a great sense of pride
Civil War soldiers to present day heroes
their battles over.
