I go round some graveyards taking photos, not to be morose but its history of the areas, and tells a lot.. most have either a place set up and kept nice for our military, and in reading some it is heartbreaking especially when you see what age they died in WW2 and could still be alive today... all the things they could have done and didnt get the chance, and they did it all for us....

Visiting Arlington National Cemetery is quite an experience. Not only are there the the graves of those who have passed long ago, but also the funerals for who have recently 'been taken'.
