My fathers final resting place at Arlington National Cemetery

This is the columbarium located in Arlington National Cemetery.

My father served faithfully as a United States Marine from Nov.2, 1948 to Sept 10, 1952. He landed with the marines at Inchon Korea on Sept 15, 1950 at the age of only 22 years. The bugler pictured had just finished a service nearby and graciously posed for this picture. Even though my father passed on June 30, 2000 my mother decided to have him "Inurned" here in 2008. His "niche" is located on the top row 3rd from the right. He is surrounded by many other marines and members of the armed forces who also faithfully served their country.
