Winter Vacation: Part Three/Arlington

 This post, I think, will be one that doesn't require many words or explanations. Walking miles through this cemetery was a sobering thing. Over 400,000 men and women who gave their lives for our country, for what they believed was right, are buried there. It is truly a sacred place and it is something I will never forget.

 JFK's gravesite.

 Gramps and Grams

 Robert E. Lee's house up on the hill.

 Tomb of the unknown soldier.

Something to lighten the mood! This little captain america bobble head was in a memorial case along with other memorabilia dedicated to soldiers in Iraq.

Part Four coming soon: Museum of Natural History.
