    Default CEMETERY‏

    The first picture and the last picture are taken at

    the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier.

    There is a veterans group that started putting a cross

    and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan .

    The amazing thing is that they only do it on the

    weekends. They put up this graveyard and

    take it down every weekend.

    Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over

    it at night so nobody messes with it.

    Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and

    D.O.D. on it.

    Very moving, very powerful???
    So many young volunteers.

    So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.

    Amazing !

    I remember reading about this a while ago. Thanks for posting the pictures. Seeing what they do trumps reading about it any day.

    It may reflect death, but it is uplifting at the same time, that some care so much. God Bless Them.

    It's a beautiful tribue- too bad it's a left wing group (note the sign in the middle) using what should be a beautiful memorial to further their leftist cause.

    Still, the tribute is beautiful.

    God Bless all those that have paid the ultimate price.
