This is a photo I shot yesterday (12/13/11) at the Marietta Federal Cemetery. Almost all of the stones had wreaths laid on them, giving it an almost surreal feel. The cemetery was very quiet and I was the only person there. This is a beautiful, yet sad, place. When you see all the grave stones, white-symmetrically placed, all with a wreath – it was very emotional to think that this is only a pittance of the men and women who have died for this country.
This is patriotism at it’s best.
If you get to Marietta, Ga – this is a MUST SEE.
