Washington DC 2012: Arlington National Cemetery – JFK Memorial and Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Washington DC Tours
After stopping at the Pentagon, we traveled further south on the MetroRail to Arlington National Cemetery.

Visitor Tip: While you can walk freely around the Cemetery, you cannot drive onto the grounds.  And they are steep.  Consider purchasing tickets for a hop on hop off trolley tour through the grounds.  It will save you time and your legs.  You can purchase tickets HERE.

On the Tour we saw the grave of John F Kennedy and the eternal flame.  We also visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and watched the changing of the guard.  This is a must do event if you are at the cemetery.

Notice that I have bordered all of the pictures in black to bring a sense of seriousness and solemnity to the page.  The three uniforms on the bottom of the right hand page are part of the Jolee’s military series.  The stickers above the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier picture were purchased at the gift shop on the property.

The map of the cemetery was too big to affix to the page, and the back has too much important information to stick it down.  I opted for building a pocket into the page for the map to slide into, so that the reader to take it out to view it.
