Moleskin: Story Time With Heidi
With yesterday being the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, I told about my grandmother's brother, Jerome, who served in both WWII and the Korean War, putting in a full 20 years in the Navy, and then working at The Citadel for another 20 years afterwards. He lied about his age to get into the Navy, and was in 15 major naval battles in WWII, and had quite a few stories to tell. He and his wife are both buried at Arlington National Cemetery. When looking that up last night, it lead me to find some interesting info about Arlington that I wanted to share.
Arlington National Cemetery is comprised of 1,100 acres that belonged to Mary Anna Randolph Custis, who was married to Robert E. Lee. After the Lee family vacated the estate in 1861 at the onset of the Civil War, federal troops occupied the property as a camp and headquarters. As the number of Civil War casualties was outpacing other local Washington, D.C.-based cemeteries, the property became a burial location, initially setting aside 200 acres of the property to use as a cemetery. Today the cemetery is over 600 acres, and is the final resting place for more than 400,000 active duty service members, veterans and their families, conducting between 27 and 30 services each week day and between 6 and 8 services each Saturday.
Our freedom is not free. Never take it for granted.
SYITG, Heidi
