honoring veterans

Take a moment this holiday season to remember those who are not with us.  They include soldiers now far from home carrying out highly dangerous missions, and many who have sacrificed their lives for our country. 

Gravestones in Rosslyn's Arlington National Cemetery are currently embraced with evergreen wreaths and red ribbons to recognize the service of all veterans. That makes now an especially good time to take a quiet, contemplative walk through the cemetery.

For persons who don't live in Rosslyn, the best way to get to Arlington National Cemetery is via the Rosslyn metro stop.  From there, enjoy the amenities of downtown Rosslyn and a healthy, vigorous walk to the Rosslyn (north) gate of the cemetery, opposite the Marshall Drive entrance to the Marine Corps' Iwo Jima Memorial.
