Beautiful memorial, Lynne. One of the most touching places I've ever been was the Vietnam Memorial in DC. This reminded me of that.

This is very much like the Vietnam Memorial. We went to Washington DC but didn't get to the Arlington National Cemetery but we did see The Vietnam Memorial. I know what a respectful feeling you get when you see these memorials in person. I get that feeling every time we visit Gettysburg, too. Wonderful pictures.

What a wonderful memorial for all those who sacrificed their lives for us. Support our troops: bring them home.

Thanks for these photos of Arlington and other memorials. My son is in the army and on his way back from Iraq this week. I'm glad he's coming home alive and not going to Arlington instead!

Lynne - what an inspirational post and some of the best photographs I've seen to provoke pride and memory for those who sacrifice for our peace.
