Memorial Day Weekend 08
Thousands of flags have been placed in front of the graves of the thousands of fallen soldiers and their family members at Arlington National Cemetery. Soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry (also know as the Old Guard) placed the flags in a three hour ceremony known as "Flags-In" earlier this week. While at the Cemetery today (Saturday), I also watched the "changing of the guard" and will post pictures from that tomorrow.
