Scenes from Arlington National Cemetery

Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery

Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery

These are some photos I took at Arlington National Cemetery in 2007.

This, the most well-known of all the national cemeteries across America, is located in Arlington, Virginia across the Potomac from the central Washington D.C. area.

Arlington National Cemetery is the final resting place for thousands of American military heroes.

It is also the location of the Tomb of the Unknowns, which contains the remains of one unidentified soldier from World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.  The Tomb of the Unknowns is guarded 24/7/365 by a dedicated military honor guard.

I hope you’ll take the time to view these pictures of this hallowed ground.  Click on the presentation below and on the following page, click any photo to enlarge it.

Remember our American servicemen and women who have served and those who still serve this Memorial Day.  Theirs is the sacrifice that safeguards our freedom and prosperity here at home.  Treat them–and the country they serve–with the utmost respect.
