Rows of graves line the North Africa American Cemetery in Tunis, Tunisia

There are some 147 national cemeteries in the United States, providing a final resting place for U.S. military personnel, veterans and their spouses.

Mary Clark has visits several of these monuments both in the states, and overseas, and discovers that each is distinct in its own way.
