Tombstone Tuesday - Frederick W. and Betty V. Seaver in Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery

I want to honor my father's 102nd birthday today in a Tombstone Tuesday post today:

This is the gravestone for my parents, Frederick Walton Seaver (1811-1983) and Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver (1919-2002) at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Point Loma in San Diego, California.

How to get to Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery?  Here's a map:

A map of Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery was found at http://gravelocator.cem.va.gov/NGLMap?ID=6643021:

The north-south road to Cabrillo National Monument bisects the cemetery.  My parents gravestone is on the west side of the road, in Section V (notable on the gravestone).  You enter the main entrance, and turn left on the road running north-south.  They are the first stone behind the first tree by the side of the road:

This photo was taken looking North along the secondary north-south road toward the main cemetery entrance.  They are the first in-ground gravestone just this side of the tree.

At Fort Rosecrans, in-ground gravestones are used for cremated remains in order to inter more veterans and their family members.  There are over 110,000 interments at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.
