Nevada VI

About 40 miles east of Reno is the Northern Nevada Veterans Cemetery. By comparison to some it feels somehow smaller and more intimate.

There is a cluster of memorials to those who were lost in 'Nam, including one to the Nurses lost while caring for the wounded.

POW/MIAs are remembered at least twice. Once with  the nurses and again here at the entrance to the Cemetery.

Vietnam's heroes are as always individually noted, but there are at least two other sites honoring them.  There was actually one more, but the light was so very bright that even in post processing I was unable to reduce the reflection and glare to an acceptable level.

Note  the dates on this marker

Veterans families may choose the kind of interment desired. there are many "Pillow stone" traditional sites as well as these mausoleum type sites. I do not know if this is due to a space issue or just providing a choice.

So, we depart Nevada for now and move on to New Jersey, so join me there on the 23rd at 9:00am.
