Wood National Cemetery, the only United States National Cemetery in Wisconsin, located in Milwaukee. It encompasses over 50 acres and has over 37,000 interments. The cemetery was established in 1871. It became a National Cemetery in 1973 and is currently operated by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
It’s a moving experience to visit this cemetery. As a veteran myself, I am thankful that I never saw combat or suffered injury during my military service. Every American owes respect and gratitude to the hundreds of thousands of American servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the freedoms of our citizens.
