On behalf of area veterans organizations., I would like to thank everyone for the tremendous turnout for the opening ceremony for the Fargo National Cemetery. Mother Nature didn't necessarily cooperate, but it was still an incredible success.
This is the first national cemetery in North Dakota history. Thank you to Sens. John Hoeven and Kevin Cramer for making this a reality.
As veterans, many of us continue to serve and this National Cemetery will keep our organizations very busy in the future providing military honors at every burial through our combined Honor Guard.
