More Cemetery Exploring

We continued our quest to find nice places to enjoy the outdoors that were far away from other people. Our visit to Bellefontaine Cemetery was a win, with lots of space and close to zero people. We continued our cemetery theme with a visit to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery.


This was a military cemetery after all. Even in death, there were a lot of rules to follow.

Notable residents include two Medal of Honor recipients as well as 123 victims of the Palawan massacre. As the Allies advanced in the Japanese-occupied Philippines, Japanese herded American POWs into buildings and then set the buildings on fire in order to stop them from being rescued.

You know what, I think this is meant to be an insult, but I'm gonna allow it.
