Punchbowl Cemetery

Yesterday afternoon Josh and I walked to Punchbowl Cemetery or the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, which is about a mile and a half from our apartment. Punchbowl is a giant volcanic crater that now serves as a memorial and resting place for those men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces. Approximately 53,000 men and women who served our country during WWI, WW2, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, along with their significant others, have been buried or cremated here. It was incredibly peaceful and serene and you get a pretty cool view of the city as well. It was also a great reminder of those that have fought and died for our freedom. Thank you to so many individuals out there for serving our country past, present and future (including three of the most important men in my life…both of my wonderful grandfathers and Josh).
