Arlington National Cemetery

ROADS LESS TRAVELED - Arlington National Cemetery; Veterans Day 2007

This Veterans Day weekend I traveled to Arlington National Cemetery. I wanted to walk and reflect on the grounds where so many veterans from throughout our nations history are interred and memorialized. It is not my style to visit such places on a tour-mobile, although I do not cast dispersions on those that do. I chose this day to deliberately walk the grounds away from the more heavily trafficked areas of the site. I entered the cemetery by a little used entrance on the north side only open to foot traffic. I was immediately rewarded as I walked alone in the gently rolling landscape, with not another sole in sight, as a group of 5 deer presented themselves to me. It was a crisp and beautiful mid Atlantic fall day. I will keep my reflections from this walk to myself but I do want to share what I feel are unique views from that walk inside Arlington National Cemetery this Veterans Day weekend. Please look and feel free to comment.

To all that have served, Thank You.
