DC Trip,Day Two.

Saturday morning we took our bus over to Arlington National Cemetery, so we could meet our tour guide for the days adventure. His name is Tom, he's a retired school teacher and he volunteers at 3 different museums when he's not guiding tours. Tom was born in India and has lived in the states for the last 25 years, I believe he said. His passion and knowledge for America, American history and the monuments was amazing. There were times, when he was describing or telling a story at the cemetery, when he had me either in tears or laughing. He made the trip for me.
The headstones were in a perfect straight line,no matter which way you looked at them. Because a soldier is marching even in death.

JFK's eternal flame.

Still marching.

They gave their lives for science,not war.

Don't let our national space program die,so their deaths won't be in vain.

Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier

There all hero's in my eyes.

Our guide Tom.
