Our Visit to Arlington National Cemetery

Friend Kate Coleman, Shelly and I went to Arlington National Cemetery to visit the niche of Bob Coleman, Kate's husband and our dear friend who passed away in 2020 from Covid. While there, we also toured the cemetery grounds.

First we visited Bob in the columbarium. Bob's internment was in March, 2022, and this is the first time we've been back to say hi and that we missed him. Here's a couple photos of his niche and Kate.

We then drove back to the Welcome Center and bought tickets for a tram tour. We boarded the tram and headed to the grave sites of President John F. Kennedy, and his brothers Robert and Edward. Here's a photo of JFK's grave with the eternal flame, and the Arlington House, home of General Robert E. Lee, in the background.

We then visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and watched the changing of the guard. It's quite a cool ceremony. Here's some photos of the tomb and guard, and a video of the changing of the guard.

Lastly, we went to tour the Arlington House and took photos of some incredible views of Washington DC and the Washington Monument, the US Capitol, and the Jefferson Memorial.

We ended the day with dinner at the King Street Oyster Bar in Potomac, MD. It was a great day, and the weather and company was fabulous.
