We visited on Sunday morning, July 28 (we arranged for a "DC by foot" walking tour ahead of time). We arrived around 9:15am in time to find the location of my Aunt's grave through their on-line system. We were able to do this and visit her grave prior to our 10:00am tour. Tour was great in that lots information was gleaned about the specifics of the cemetary. A separate review is posted on TA about our tour.
The thing to me that is so overwhelming about Arlington Cemetary is the size of it. It is so beautiful. The way the headstones align is almost eery. The sacrifice of so many people does my heart good. While it is sad, in reflection, it is something to be so very prideful about.
Our country has so many good people who are willing to sacrifice everything for us and our country.
The view looking down from General Lee's old house back at the city is amazing. Our 3 sons really understood the magnitude of our visit to Arlington. That, too, serves one's heart well.
