Headed up the Arlington National Cemetery today. Although you've all seen pictures of it (or at least have now ;) Nothing can really give you an idea of how many graves there are. They just stretch out in front of you in every direction, accross beatifull rolling hills, draped in the shade by overhanging trees. A fittingly serene place for a graveyard. The picture of the soldier, in full dress uniform is a member of the honour gard at the tomb of the unkown soldier. It was incredibly hot (around 30 degress celcius) with humidity at around 80%, but he kept walking up and down, paying service. How he manages to do it without pausing to mop a brow, let along pass out from the heat and the heavy uniform is beyond me!
