Arlington Cemetery

Our country was built on the dedication and fortitude of those who fight for our freedoms, and this hallowed ground is a final resting place to more than 400,000 veterans and war heroes. Stroll through the 624 rolling green acres of the grounds, see the eternal flame at John F. Kennedy’s gravesite, witness the magnificent Changing of the Guard ceremony, visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and explore the Women’s Memorial at the entrance. There is so much history and honor in this cemetery that it’s nearly impossible not to be awestruck by its magnificence. –RLS / arlingtoncemetery.mil
