The Marines' Memorial.
A testament to the Marines (and Sailors) who fought and died to protect our life, liberty and peace.
Great place to watch the July 4th Fireworks on the National Mall. Tips for July 4th - come early, know the rules, park in authorized spots as you'll get towed.

This sculpture is huge. It is in Roselyn in its own square near Arlinton National Cemetery & Ft. Myer. Worth seeing!

Everyone's seen the photo. Moving if you know the background. Several of these guys never made it off the island. Google the history of the most famous photo of WW II and read up on it before going to the memorial.

Of all the museums I visited in the DC area this was my favorite! This is an excellent museum with a wealth of history and information. They offer an exhibit where you can test your sharp shooting. The last leg of the tour is the 9/11 memorial and it will tug at you heart string. Don't miss this one!
