Fort Reno Post Cemetery

We took a short drive west to Fort Reno and visited the historic post cemetery. There are a number of "Unknown" graves, like the two above, along with many older graves of soldiers from the late 1800s, like this one:

On the west side of the cemetery, cordoned off from the rest of the grounds, is a set of 70 graves of WW2 German and Italian POWs (mainly those captured during the Africa campaigns) who died in nearby prison camps.
