Arlington National Cemetery special wreath laying ceremony with my nephew

One day I got the very exciting news that my nephew from Texas won an essay contest, as did some of his classmates. So they earned a trip to historical Virginia, which included an opportunity to participate in a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

My son happened to have the day off so together we drove through heavy morning traffic to the tranquil setting of the cemetery.

The crisp autumn day had only a bit of chill in the air.

After walking past our cousin's grave, we arrived at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
