Because of his service to his country, my father, John S. Miller, Sergeant United States Marine Corps — he is now buried with my mother, Elizabeth Anne Miller at Arlington National Cemetery. There are no words for the intensity and beauty of Arlington National Cemetery —  beautiful in the essence of sacrifice and honor.SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC
