Freaking amazing. A wonderful experience. We watched silently the honor guard March back and forth guarding the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. We also got to witness the changing of the guards. Such a great experience. Our school was honored to place a wreath for the tomb. I would suggest this to anyone who visits Washington D.C.
Always amazed when I go there. The tomb of the unknown such a sacred place. Great views from the mansion. Worth the hike. Look up one or two of the military folks buried there. Watching the guard change is fascinating.
