Recently my wife and I visited the Yellowstone National Cemetery north of Laurel. It was our first visit. The cemetery is in a nice setting and very well maintained. The small staff does a great job. Given that we have so many veterans in Montana, it is important that we have a Veterans Administration cemetery in this part of the state. It is a very attractive and honored site for a final resting place for those who have served our country.
The only issue we had as part of our visit was finding the cemetery. Yes, there is one sign along the interstate coming in both directions. But they are not very prominent. Additionally, once you exit the interstate there are no signs. Yes, signs can add to the overall appearance of clutter, but it seems very appropriate for signage to assist families to find the cemetery, even in this age of cellphone apps and GPS navigation systems. Many of the visitors are elderly and some are from out-of-state and unfamiliar with the Laurel area. Appropriate and dignified signage would be a positive.
