Arlington Section 60 Part II

  • Sep 21, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Arlington National Cemetery

Since there is a greater interest in this activity I am going to schedule a second date.  For those of you were not able to join us for the Memorial Day outing I wanted to offer another opportunity to visit and honor those who have been lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. Section 60 is unlike any other section of the cemetery.  This is where those who have been lost in the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan have been put to rest.  In a way it is very alive.  With momentous, pictures and more you really get an understanding of the suffering of many of these parents, grandparents and young families.  Out of respect for those who may be visiting loved ones please understand the need to keep the group small.  Thanks you.

    I would love to come to this. My husband is buried there. He was an Army sniper killed in Afgjanistan 09/09/2011. It means a lot to me and the families you are going to section 60 and acknowledging their great sacrifices.

      Jane I am sorry for your loss. The first time I visited section 60 I met the mother of Justin Davis who was killed at the age of 19. After hearing his story I wanted to do something to bring attention to these men and women. Since my first visit I started a page on FB called May We Never Forget. There are photos and I started it in hopes that it could be a place where family and friends could share the lives of the loved ones they have lost. I would love to talk to you more if you wanted to share his life with me.
