The Great Lakes National Cemetary

This cemetary is near Holly, Michigan and was founded in 2005. It is mostly for veterans from Michigan. It was established because many of the other VA cemetaries in Michigan are getting full.

The sign at the front.

The VA seal.

This is called the Avenue of the Flags. Usually all of the masts are occupied which makes it a pretty impressive sight.

Another look of the flags.

The headstones. I love how precise everything is, it almost looks like a group of soldiers in formation.

Another shot.

For being new, there are getting to be quite a few graves here.

Another look at the line up.

Another angle of the stones.
