If one visits this peaceful veterans cemetery please check the times its open. It have very limited hours. Right up the hill off of the main highway and easy to find. As with most veterans cemeteries it is well maintained.

With many volunteers this cemetery has turned from lava rock and weeds to a very nice small cemetery with many local trees and scrubs.
