Lest We Forget – Remembrance Day 2018 – Rosecrans Cemetery San Diego

Lest We Forget – I thought I’d share these photos with you today as we approach Remembrance Day. Visiting these graves at Fort Rosecrans Cemetery was so incredibly moving. I don’t think any words are needed about the sacrifices these men and women made for us all, the photos speak for themselves.

We discovered Fort Rosecrans Cemetery quite by accident as we made our way to the Cabrillo National Monument.  I can’t quite explain the feelings that hit you as you turn off towards the national park and are met with several fields filled with rows and rows of white stones. It is an extremely moving and humbling experience to witness quite how many people have lost their lives in service.
