I took a short 25 mile drive up to Sturgis after getting my car serviced in Rapid City yesterday. About three miles from Sturgis is the Black Hills National Cemetery. It is so well kept that I thought I should stop and share some photos with all of our military on the forum.
Most of the original interments in the cemetery were soldiers from the Indian Wars in the late 1800's. Since that time it has been used to inter veterans from every major campaign the U.S. has been involved in. It is 105.9 acres and at the end of 2005 had 19,147 interments.

Photo #1 is not at the cemetery, but at Sturgis. I thought it was a great way to honor the soldiers who have passed on. The rest of the photos were taken at the cemetery. Now we can only hope they begin to take care of our vets who are still with us, as well as they take care of this beautiful cemetery.

Beautiful pictures, Betty! That does look well kept, and I share your sentiments exactly about taking care of our living veterans!

Many thanks. My wife and I are planning a vacation to the Dakotas some day. We want to come here, and to Mt Rushmore, of course.

Nice pics, nice cemetery. We've stayed at the 2 campgrounds next door when we've been there for the rally. Been a few years now.
Been enjoying your pics, you live in one of the nicest regions in the country IMO.
