I have visited Arlington Cemetary many times during my life. As a child with my parents, as an Army wife when my husband was with the 3rd Infantry and served as the Tomb Guard Commander, and daily visits when I worked in Rosslyn and took walks there. Not once during all these visits did I not feel proud and blessed... More

A massive graveyard that evokes lots of emotions, when you know that not only soldiers are buried by each tombstone, but many have spouses buried on top of them. The John Kennedy and his brother Robert's grave sites are really emotional, as they were such men of love for all mankind!

My husband and I grew up in the area so we spent many field trips here. I don't think that a child has a true understanding of what they are seeing, I know that I didnt. As a veteran and an adult I wept at the cemetry, especially at the Tomb of the Unknown. We did not take the shuttle,... More

We laid my dad's ashes to rest at Arlington. It was an amazing service and experience! The young service men who participated in the ceremony were professional and so respecful of us, that made it very special. And, the cemetery itself is absolutely beautiful.

Always interesting, much to see. Love the quotes at JFK's grave site. The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is impressive!

It was a fantastic visit to the cemetery. If you have never taken the time to visit - you must. We opted for the hop-on-hop-off bus tour. Very easy to use and always on time. My only complaint is that we picked one of the hottest days to visit. No fault of ANC, just the luck of the weather gods.

It was amazing to be able to spend time in such a place. You look around and see the size of the place and then realise what is really before you.... You can get carried away with just 'looking' for the famous names, but take a second to stop and pay respect to ALL those who are buried there, as... More

We have the pleasure of living very close to Arlington National Cemetery so we often take long walks through there. It's lovely in the spring with all of the flowering trees and flowers, the summer is beautiful with the green lawns and flowers, and the winter is equally beautiful. We have been volunteers at Christmas time placing wreaths on the... More
