{This Moment} See Beautiful ~ Arlington

My {This Moment} See Beautiful was my trip to Arlington National Cemetery. This was my most favorite part of my Eastern Shores vacation.

As I relive this moment I want to acknowledge Veterans Day that was held this past Tuesday on November 11, 2014. Thank you to all our Veterans for your time in service and out. Without you we wouldn’t have the freedom that we have.

 

We went and visited the Tomb Of The Unknown Solider and watched The Changing of the Guard. What a site to see, every American should see this. I could of sat there all day and just watch the guard meticulously marching and changing directions repeating until his time is up.

Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God

Here are the two videos I took during my visit.

A truly {This Moment} See Beautiful!

“War drew us from our homeland

In the sunlit springtime of our youth.

Those who did not come back alive remain

in perpetual springtime – forever young-

And a part of them is with us always.”

  1. Great post! That is so cool that you got to go there! My parents took me there when I was a little kid but have never gotten to go back. My uncle was buried there a couple of years ago. Would like to go back there to visit someday!

  2. What a perfect post for just after Veterans Day. I went there when I was in college….so long ago…but the Changing of the Guard is definitely the one thing that sticks in my mind the most.
