Memorial Day

Arlington National Cementary…Most Americans know the name, so few have actually been there. My wife and I went there a few years ago, I had no idea how huge it really was. Me trying to be cheap and save a few bucks decided against the tour (and tour bus) and figured we could walk it. If you ever go TAKE THE BUS ! We walked and walked and walked. It’s not a flat place either, it is all very hilly.

Of course if you do go there you also must stay for the changing of the guard and also President JFK’s memorial, both could bring a tear to one’s eyes.

This Memorial day take a visit to one of our nation’s National cemetaries if you can, if not then find a family that has lost someone while serving in the military and thank them.
