Many soliders have sacrificed to make America the free country that it is, as well as to bring freedom to many parts of the world. Memorial Day is one day to rememeber that. One place has remembered their sacrifice since 1937, the Tomb of the Unknowns (aka Tomb of the Unknown Soldier) at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. [aside: 41 countries have tombs to unknown soliders] Having seen it first-hand, the ceremonial ritual of remembrance, the sentinel guard marching back and forth, is indeed an “embodiment of order, respect and dignity.

The Washington Post noted the tribute of the this with a 2-minute video, a photo gallery, and article. I love freedom. Thank you men & women who’ve served us well.
