Memorial Day 2010

Last week I spent 3 days in Washington D.C. chaperoning a graduation trip. It was very moving to see all the sights and here are a few pictures and videos that relate to today being Memorial Day.

"Freedom is not Free" sign from the Korean War Memorial

Korean War Memorial

Vietnam War Memorial

World War II Memorial

This video is from the World War II Memorial. There are 4,000 Gold Stars on the wall and each star represents 100 soldiers who were killed in World War II
At Arlington Cemetery there are 2 things that everyone makes sure to see, one is where JFK is buried, the second is the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
