Calumet Park thanks all who visited the park this weekend to pay their respects.  Thousands of cars passed through the gates over the weekend with people coming out to remember their lost loved ones.

Battle of the Bulge tribute monument. Next visit to the cemetery, get a close-up look at the monument. There are scenes etched into the granite of the battle. On the back of the monument is a map of Europe showing how the battle lines between good and evil bulged but never broke with the good guys winning, thanks to our wonderful troops.
