Arlington National Cemetery (5/27/2019)

The Arlington National Cemetery is the country’s largest military cemetery and serves as the final resting place for more than 400,000 military veterans and their immediate family from the fronts of Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as World Wars I and II, the Korean conflict, Vietnam, the Cold War and America’s Civil War.

The World War II Memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S., the more than 400,000 who died, and all who supported the war effort from home. It is flanked by the Washington Monument to the east and the Lincoln Memorial to the west.

Photos were taken in the early April during the cherry bloom season in Washington DC.

  1. Wonderful but humble place Amy. I have been to only one war cemetery in Thailand. Yes, walking through those fallen heroes just a goosebump moment! Each one of them has a different story to tell but for us they all are the same!
