IGO, Calif. – Decorated on each gravestone is an American flag, marking and honoring a veteran and people coming out to remember their service.

On top of Albert Lee Davis's grave lays sunflowers. His granddaughter, Sarah Davis, placed them there.

“I picked sunflowers just because my grandpa never really had a favorite flower but sunflowers are mine, and he was a die-hard Anderson fan and their colors are blue and gold,” shared Davis.

Her grandfather served in the navy during the Korean war. Davis remembers many of the stories her grandfather told her.

“We were raised on a lot of different stories, I think my favorite memory is when he told us he got to play football in front of the queen of England just because he's always been a huge football fan,” explained Davis.

This is the first year that Davis is celebrating veteran's day without her grandfather, after losing him earlier this year. But she is thankful for his service to the country.

“The United States of America is a free country because of our military and because of our vets.”

The Northern California Veterans Cemetery serves 18 Northern California populations. It is the first California Veterans Cemetery to be built in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
