“Visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The greatest thing at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is the changing of the guards. These men are so polished and precise in their movements, it is a joy and pleasure to watch them present their routine to the visitors.

Very interesting to view the changing of the guard. The entire cemetery is very humbling and the grounds beautiful.

I have been here many times and it still raises emotions every time I go or think about it. The dedication and solemnity of the guards and the place is unbelievable.

“Impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Grounds and guards were very impressive. Crowds and school kids not so much. Next time I'd good early to try to avoid the bulk of the mobs
