I just watched a Drone fly over of Arlington National Cemetary. I have seen pictures from ground level and from different angles,but I am telling you while watching these never ending rows in perfect alingment and the grounds kept just perfect was as emotional thing I have ever seen, This video was approx. five minutes and I had to think how many Lives lost and Americans there and of course this being Memorial Day sure puts things into perspective. I am as guilty as others worrying about so many things that in the "BIG PICTURE" are irrelevant and selfish. There are many who did what they were Called to do and many who stepped up to volunteer and All Did Not Run.

I would hope that all that would be interested here have an opportunity to find a copy of it,because it was not anything I can put into words.

Enjoy your Loved Ones and maybe take a minute to remember those "HERO's"

God Bless America!!

I was able to visit Arlington, it is very emotional and impossible to explain just how huge it is.

It's a "must-see" for every American IMO. Very beautiful and powerful.

I have had thoughts at times that want to visit and as usual "OTHET" B.S. gets in the way. I promise after watching this and when this Virus ordeal becomes a Bad Dream I am going to make plans to fly there, hopefully this Fall. I will Never forget the Visual of this mornings Video.

My first visit to Arlington was in 1949 with my parents. I did not return until 10 years later and then not again for another 50 years. It is a very emotional journey thru the cemetery and the watching of the changing of the guards. My last visit was about 5 years ago and my wife and i will go every time we are in Washington DC visiting the daughter.

Went to Arlington Cemetery last June. A must do for everyone. Spent a week in DC and Virgina and Arlington was for sure one of the highlights. Thank You to all of those that made the supreme sacrifice for my freedom. Lets not forget that especially RIGHT NOW!

Thank-You!, I could have used Google to discover the Cemetery. I thought it looked like the Ocean. Bless your Mother, Father and your Baby Sister. I would Love to watch your Video if ever get an opportunity to post it up. Great Story!!

One of the many stops we made on our 8th grade trip to the east coast. Never Forget that trip.
