“The patriot’s blood is the seed of freedom’s tree.” – Thomas Campbell

I wanted to share some photos I took a few years back in 2015. I was working a case in the Punchbowl area of Honolulu and had some time to visit the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

It was actually on Veterans Day (not Memorial Day), however I thought why not share the photos today. Honestly, it was both humbling and put life into perspective being able to visit a place where the men and women buried served America, many of them died while doing so; the sight was awe-inspiring, as are the stories of these individuals.

There’s at least 34,000 graves at Punchbowl; this includes service members, dignitaries, and politicians. Unfortunately, due to the fact we were working, I wasn’t able to see the cemetery up close and personal. Next time!
