Utah woman visiting Arlington Cemetery runs into Vice President Mike Pence
ARLINGTON, Va. – Utahn Vivian Glaeser, who lives in Stansbury Park, got quite a surprise while visiting Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday.
“He was visiting the grave of a fallen Ranger and placing flags. He personally thanked my sister-in-law (retired Bird Colonel) for her service,” she wrote in the message sent to KSL 5 TV.
“He was so kind and humble and gracious. It was really an amazing experience.” Glaeser wrote.
She wrote that they spoke to him about her nephew Peter, a Green Beret, and her nephew Mark who was graduating from the United States Naval Academy on Friday.
Glaeser said soldiers were also at the cemetery placing flags on graves. She said a flag was being placed on every grave, which is over 400,000, for Memorial Day.
“It was SO special to look out over all those headstones and [you] can’t help thinking of those people and their families and their sacrifices. I will never forget that,” she wrote.
“It is a very special and reverent place and everyone should visit there if you get the chance,” she wrote.
