Home to 30 different memorials and monuments, Arlington National Cemetery is a tribute to brave people who have served in the armed forces
Arlington National Cemetery serves as the final resting place for over 400,000 service members and their families. This unique site encompasses 639 acres overlooking the Potomac River and it has become more than just a cemetery: now it is a part of the American history as well as a tribute to those brave ones who once served with honor and sacrifice. While looking upon the memorials, visitors have a chance to learn more about the American heroes and heroines and their past, witness the time-honored Changing of the Guard ceremony, or lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
