San Joaquin National Cemetery

San Joaquin National Cemetery
A few miles north and west of the I-5, near Santa Nella, Ca, is the San Joaquin National Cemetery. A new cemetery for military and veterans. It's farily remote, though every time I have visited there has been a funeral in process. Many of those buried are veterans of earlier wars, though many are also victims of the Iraq & Afghanistan wars. Seeing the families (often Hispanic), and hearing taps and then a rifle salute, are solemn reminders of what we are doing and who is paying the costs of these wars
