The first sight we visited inside the Arlington cemetery was the gravesite of John Fitzgerald Kennedy who was the 35th president of United States.

You can see the eternal flame (an idea of his wife Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis) which will remind you of the one at Arc de Triumph in Paris.

It is located on the slope below the Arlington House and it?s Kennedy?s final resting place, next to him are the graves of his wife and children.

The white cross on the left (pic 2) marks the grave of Robert F.Kennedy(1925-1968), brother of John F. Kennedy. There are also famous phrases of Kennedy written on the stone (pic 3)
