When most people think of Memorial Day, they think the long weekend, a chance to do cookouts with family or friends, maybe an excuse to hit the malls. And I’ll admit that this weekend is going to be crazy for us. Dear friends have a son is getting married tomorrow. I think I’ll be able to do this tomorrow, but I’m not sure when. Memorial Day is to remember those who have died in the war. Today let’s look at some places that you might to go to memorialize those who have the ultimate sacrifice.
- The site everyone thinks of when they want to pay honor dead soldiers is Arlington, VA. This is near our Capital of Washington D.C.. This is a cemetery that was establishthe time of the Civil “The Tomb of the Unnamed Soldier”, and you will also find a memorial to women who have served.
- In D.C., you are going to find a lot of memorials. In relation to what we’re talking about today you will find a memorial to both the Korean and the Vietnam War. Both are near the National Mall, is not a shopping center. There are memorials you can visit in this city, which makes it a popular place to visit this weekend.
