Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery | Our Military

Fort Rosecrans - Military.png

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Cabrillo National Monument is at the southern tip of the Point Loma Peninsula in San Diego, California. It commemorates the landing of Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo at San Diego Bay on September 28, 1542 stepping into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States.

The above monument was our reason for driving to this area of San Diego.  What I found more interesting were the marine and navy bases stationed in this area.  We also passed Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery with the white headstones, rows and rows.  All those lives sacrificed serving their country, a cause greater than themselves.  I know we have numerous cemeteries such as this around the country but for a girl from mid-America, comprehending our military in active service to their country made it more a reality in my mind.

Thank you, men and women, for all you do!
