DC - Arlington Cemetery & WW2 Memorial

That afternoon we visited Arlington National Cemetery, a very sobering reminder of those who gave their lives so we can enjoy our freedoms. John F. Kennedy's grave is shown here, with its eternal flame.
Here's a view of the National Mall from the cemetery.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
The changing of the guard.
And rows and rows of graves.
In the evening we took a walk around the mall at night. Most of those shots will go up when I put up pictures of the various monuments and memorials, but here are some of the World War II Memorial. Due to weather we didn't get back to that one in the daytime. Please bear in mind that I had no tripod, so these are hand-held night shots.


Many thanks to our veterans and those who are currently serving our country. This day really brought home what you are all doing for us.
