History and Memory at the Cemetery and Columbarium

Cemeteries record the past

The Naval Academy Cemetery is a record of tears: of children mourning lost parents, of parents mourning lost children, of a nation mourning lost heroes, and of a school mourning lost classmates.

The Naval Academy Cemetery is a record of accomplishments:  Medal of Honor recipients, a Chief of Naval Operations, superintendents of the Naval Academy, midshipmen, and former employees of the Academy are among those buried there. 

The Naval Academy Cemetery is a record of conflicts and peacetimes:  counting in its number veterans of every major American War after its inception, and including those lost to accidents in times of peace.

A record of how those entombed on Hospital Point thought of themselves, and a record of how others have aspired to remember them.

The Naval Academy Cemetery and Columbarium is a record of the United States Naval Academy
