Quantico National Military Cemetary is just down the road about 15 miles from my home. For just as many years I have meant to visit it. Yesterday was beautiful weather and so I found another Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) to make the short road trip with me. (Two chiefs are more than a tribe!)
While the cemetary sits adjacent to Quantico Marine Corps Base, it is truly a national cemetary with members of all branches of military service resting there.
Being a family historian I did some quick research on Goldens interred at Quantico. None are related to me that I know of — but the truth is that I haven’t done that research yet.
