Veterans Day

Michael Larson of Cub Scout Pack 188 rested in the grass before a ceremony honoring the black veterans buried at Calvary Cemetery in Norfolk on Veterans Day, Friday, November 11, 2011. Calvary Cemetery was established as a black cemetery in 1877, and many of Norfolk's black citizens were interred there until the desegregation of cemeteries in the mid-1970s.
