  18. This would be a place I'd visit if I had the opportunity. I like the concrete fencing in the background of that first shot.

  19. I don't remember the parking but I do remember standing still next to that tomb... and a long walk in the cemetary.

  20. It has been many years since I've been there, but I will agree that it is certainly worth going to.

  21. I like that parking idea. Our Home Depot has special parking for Vets and active military, too. I've had the privilege to be able to visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington. It was very moving...

  26. I like not only the steel fence but the stone fence/railing in the background.

    Bless those soldiers and all our veterans.

  27. At least the soldier walking patrol seems to have a heavy coat and a warm hat. Otherwise, this would be a very nasty duty, no matter how great an honor to be selected for this service.

  28. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a fine monument. All presidents in memory have placed flowers there on Veteran's Day, as well they should.
