"Paying Respect" Arlington by terps94

Arlington Travel Guide: 483 reviews and 1,161 photos

Visiting Arlington Memorial Cemetary has a lot of meaning for me. My predecessors in the military who have paid the ultimate sacrifice are interned here, one of those is my Grandfather who serve in WW2 in the Pacific. I have the deepest respect for all those people who set the standards for my generation of military members.

Tomb of the Unknowns

"HERE RESTS
IN HONORED GLORY
AN AMERICAN SOLDIER
KNOWN BUT TO GOD"

This is inscribed in the marble sarcophagus of the Tombs of the Unknowns which is one of the most visited site in Arlington Cemetary.
