The soldiers are still standing at attention ready for service. If you notice if you ever have the honor of going to Arlingtion National Cemetary the rows of soldiers are line in perfect rows from any direction that you look at them because they are made to look as if they are always to be ready for service. There were several times walking around the cemetary that I was near tears if I was not crying at the moment because it is just so powerful to look at the sheer scope of the lives of those who have died so that we may be free. Let us always remeber the importance of our men and women in uniform and honor them and thank them. The ampitheatre attached to the tomb of the unknown soldier.
We were lucky enough to bear witness to the changing of the guard at the tomb of the unknown soldier. That was a moving ceremony to watch.

Robert Kennedy's grave just below that of his brother, President John F. Kennedy

Kennedy actually picked out this spot in a way when he went to lay a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier and as he was walking around the cemetary he came upon this location and upon standing there turned and noticed you could see the Washington Monument and all of DC and it was peaceful and quiet and beautiful. He sated that he could spend eternity in that one spot so when he was laid to rest that is just what his wife did, she laid him where he could always watch out over the city that he so dearly loved.
