Now that I am much older and my grandmother is now one of the visited grave sites, I wish I had paid more attention to what she was telling me!!! I no longer live anywhere near where we would go, but my brother faithfully carries on the tradition, with even more sites to visit. It is not meant to be a sad time....just a remembering time....but a tradition that I don't think the younger generation will probably carry on with, considering our mobile society.

We visited DC in 2002 for the first time and the daily honoring of the grave of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery is most impressive.
