Sarasota National Cemetery is a place for meditation, to reflect on our nation's heroes, or to just sit and marvel at the beautiful surroundings. The amphitheatre holds occasional concerts, and funerals are conducted with military precision.

Sarasota National Cemetery is a bit of a drive out of town, however it is a beautiful site and resting place for our nations hero's. We were there for just that,and The Cemetery is really large and so beautiful. Our Hero's deserve it.

They are having a ceremony on Saturday at 11 am - Brigadier General Gerald McIlmoyle (US Airforce, retired) will be speaking. There will be a band as well.

Thank you for stating what this cemetery is for. Attraction is not one of the words that I would subscribe to this hallowed ground.
