Taxis at WW2, Knights of Columbus, Iwo Jima, and Arlington

Hello! I am visiting these 4 sites on a Saturday in May. Will I have a problem hailing a cab? If I have to call one, how far in advance do I have to call. I am on a vert tight schedule. Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you mean John Paul II Museum and Shrine when you say Knights of Columbus? If yes, it is in the quiet part of town, and there are no major cab-cruising roads nearby.

So you will definitely have to call for a cab. Using Uber app on the smart phone looks like the best option for you.

I'm lost on the Knights of Columbus thing, personally. What/where is this?

Knights do Columbus is at 5034 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington

What about the WW2 Memorial and Arlington Cemetery? Are taxis readily available there at all times?

You are on the outskirts of the city that far up Wisconsin, but you can get a cab within 10 minutes probably, if you stand right on Wisconsin. For WW2 you are right in the middle of the mall, you should be able to get a cab on 17th st, or walk up to Constitution Ave if the traffic on 17th is not moving. Not sure about Arlington, I actually have never been there. But as with everything, you are better off walking to the major road to catch a cab or using Uber on your phone to order one.
