A deer at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery

"Visiting My Father's Grave" My father, a two time Vietnam war Veteran and retired USAF officer is buried at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in Missouri. The cemetery was established in 1863, and now covers a huge amount of land [like at Arlington.] A herd of deer live there and feed off the abundant grass. I was on my way to my father's tombstone when I saw this deer resting.
