    Pics from this morning. Very somber, very humbled by the sacrifices. My oldest was part of his schools team to help lay a wreath. Couldn't help but tear up during taps.

    We owe never ending respect and immeasurable gratitude to those interned there.... and the Tomb Guards too... an honor to be chosen for this duty.

    I couldn't agree more. That place touched me like no other. Everyone should visit at least once.

    We tried going in 2012. They wouldn't let me drop my FIL and wife & children off, then go park. Only place we found to park was back across the river and I wasn't going to make them walk that far, so we went to Skyline Drive.

    Hope to go back that way soon.

    Yes. BTW, my grandparents weren't "heroes" -- except to me.

    I went several years ago. We are going back next week with a couple of the grands. I think everyone should go at least once.

    Is there a flag to honor the CSA soldiers? I think libs took it down here also.

    EDIT: Next, Robert E. Lee home will be deleted from history at Arlington.
