My friends who have often lived a half century or so around Washington often tell me of never seeing our monuments. They don’t want to fight traffic mostly.
That’s just sad.
So a couple years ago I started a family and friends (we’re all friends, aren’t we?) free tour in the fall when tourists are gone and so is the humidity. This year I’ve chosen Arlington National Cemetery for Saturday, Sept. 14 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We’ll see more than the eternal flame of the Kennedys, changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns and Robert E. Lee’s home, but the parts that most of the 4 million annually visiting the cemetery never see. And, I’ll show you where to take some great photos.
It’s free since I don’t charge family and friends (though I’m not against tips.) Please email me at MonumentalThoughts@gmail.com to reserve a slot.
