Photos from: Time with family and history enjoyed at Fort Riley

While visiting Fort Riley, the boys took us to see the Main Post Cemetery. The cemetery was established in 1853 making it the oldest historic property at Fort Riley with the exception of the Cavalry Parade Field. It's set on a hill surrounded by trees, giving it a feeling of complete isolation, making for a solemn and picturesque landscape. The number of unknown U.S. Soldiers buried there pulls at the heartstrings.
