Owner description: Veterans of every American war from the Revolution to the country's most recent conflicts are buried at Arlington, which was officially declared a military cemetery in 1864. Among the more than 260,000 dead are three unidentified service members, buried at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and John F. Kennedy, whose gravesite is marked by an eternal flame.

I love the whole idea of honoring our Veterans. Having already gone to 5 funerals of dear friends Arlington holds a very important place in my heart.

We loved the place, the tours are nice and cheap. But do not forgt the Cemetery closes at 5:00 so be ready before that time 2 hours before.

Arlington is beautiful, in addition to being an important part of American history. It affords a beautiful view of the city from Lee's Mansion. Wear comfortable shoes - there are a lot of hills and expect to do a lot of walking. The visitor's center offers maps of where to find certain points of interest. Do not miss the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

As so many have written this is a place you must visit in Washington. I had visited once about 15 years ago. I was struck again by the vastness, the peace and beauty of the cemetery.
This was dusk of a sunny , cold day and that made all those rows of graves stretching as far as the eye can see somehow more moving. The JFK gravesites look over the whole city and together with his speeches will choke you up but dont miss the simple white cross of Robert Kennedy.

We visited the tomb of the unknown soldier which sits on the crest of the hill.the sun was setting as a memorial wreath was laid and the last post sounded by the bugler. Many people and not a sound except the music....very poignant.

We walked down in the cold and looked at many tombstones and memorials thinking of the loss
And the gain.

As a member of the UK Armed Forces I had a poignant and moving visit to the cemetry. There is a real sense of history in the place. The changing of the guard ceremony was outstanding.
