That's just sort of the feeling when you walk in - and it might bring tears to your eyes, and a little gulp to your throat.
The week before we went my Cousin ( I think second - but I stink at those distinctions) was buried in Arlington. Talk about humbling when you walk in to that place and realize that you are related to one of those brave Veterans.
It is just sort of amazing how you all hush your voices....
(PS there may be a few photos in this post)
Isn't that amazing - they say there are 400,000 graves there now, on just over 600 acres
It is all pretty hilly - so the views are quite amazing
We headed up to the Robert E Lee house.
It overlooks the river and is quite amazing
The docents inside dress in period costume
Oh man - did I have a great time checking out those fabrics.
These photos below are from the Womens Memorial
It was really cool, showing how women have served in the military since the beginning,
and in very critical roles.
I really enjoyed reading and looking at everything.
and in the foyer of the building is this!
My son saw it first! I have raised him well haven't I?
If you get to go to Arlington - I would totally recommend this Memorial too!
