Short tour but it was enough to see the solemnity of ceremonial. It brings tears to your eyes just knowing the symbolism behind it. One place you must go in your lifetime.

If you are visiting the DC area you should make the time to visit Arlington Cemetery and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. Read up on the history of the men and women that guard the Tomb. You can pay for the tour or walk. I think the walk makes a very big impact too.

You will feel the honor and reverence when you stand and watch these young men stand post. The determination and perfection will amaze. The knowledge that these young men do this 24 hours a day, 365 day a year will humble you. GOD BLESS AMERICA and all that stand post on that wall around the world.
