Thinking about the sacrifices of our dedicated military and their families on this Memorial Day weekend, I stopped by Golden Gate US Nationial Cemetary in San Bruno, CA near San Francisco to take a few pics.

I think all military graveyards have identical headstones like this in America but civilian cemetaries typically have individualized headstones of varying shapes and sizes. How about in Belgium?

Well I've never been to a military graveyard so I don't have a clue how those look.
Civilian cemetaries also have individualized headstones, but their could be to 5 people in it(but mostly 1), and also before the stone their will be mostly another longer stone laying down horizontal. Sometimes the graves could be basements holding up to 20 people. When a grave has multiple people in it they are (mostly) related too.

The location of the picture was pretty good, as it shows just how many patriots have stood up for our country, and for that I must applaud you. I do have a question, just from my own curiosity/ignorance on the matter, what do the numbers on the backs of some of the graves mean?

Thank you. Good question; those numbers on the reverse side of the headstones are linked to a nationwide database so loved ones can go online and easily identify the exact location of their fallen hero.
