Arlington Cemetery

I spent a couple of hours walking around Arlington Cemetery, which was only two Metro stops from my hotel.
The Tomb of the Unknowns.

JFK and the eternal flame.
Kennedy's grave attracts a constant crowd while the resting place of his brother, Robert, gets far less attention less than 100 yards away.
Heavyweight boxing champion Joe Louis served in the Army during World War II.

The cemetery's grand main entrance.
Looking across the Potomac River bridge at the Lincoln Memorial.
