Famous for pioneering aviation, including the X-1 Supersonic program, San Diego resident Retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Cardenas was honored by the City of San Diego for his drive to open a National Cemetery at MCAS Miramar. For the past several years, Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery on Point Loma has been forced to limit burials because they’ve run out of room. The new cemetery at Miramar will allow military families to continue to bury their loved ones locally rather than travel to the next nearest military cemetery in Riverside, CA. General Cardenas’ family, friends, and several members of the military were on hand to see this presentation.
