USA FOR REMEMBRANCE

A short distance across the Potomac River from the Lincoln Memorial is Arlington Cemetery, a quiet refuge from Washington DC’s central seat of power. Some 400,000 military personnel are buried beneath the swathes of neat, white gravestones, while an eternal flame marks the grave of John F Kennedy and his family. The hourly ceremonial changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – every 30 minutes during summer – pays a sombre tribute to those who have dedicated their lives to serve their country. arlingtoncemetery.mil
