Jacksonville National Cemetery
Dedicated November 10th 2012
Recognizing the men and women who served our nation in times of war keeps us mindful of the freedoms we enjoy. To ensure that their sacrifices are not forgotten, we honor those who stood proudly for us, so that we might live fully and learn to better understand and create opportunities for a more peaceful world. It’s exactly the right thing to do…honoring those who served and sacrificed. The Semper Fidelis Society Memorial at Jacksonville Evergreen Cemetery to Marines and Navy FMF Corpsmen and now the memorial at the Jacksonville National Cemetery are symbols of our appreciation and remembrance that were once common place in communities across our nation. These memorials are also beacons shining out into the community as reminders that there are still some amongst us that have values like…Honor, Courage and Commitment.
