Photo of eagle on Fort Snelling gravestone touches hearts, goes viral.'The eagle couldn't have picked a better person' This beautiful photo was taken in 2011 at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis. The eagle had landed on the grave of Sgt Maurice Ruch, enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in Decmber of 1941. Known for his keen eye, he became a rifle marksman and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands. He served four years in the military and earned a bronze star.
