Arlington, USA

Dorin sent me this lovely cemetery card...i dont often get cemeteries, so it's always nice to add one to my collection.

This is the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia...

Founded in 1807, the nation's first national cemetery is built on land originally belonging to the Lee family. It is a shrine to the thousands of men and women who have died to keep America free. Interred here are John F. Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, John Philip Sousa, J.Edgar Hoover and Matthew Brady. Inserts from top right: "Iwo Jima" Marin Corps Memorial; Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Kennedy Grave's Site.

Ok, apart from Kennedy, i dont really know the others....I thought that Matthew Brady rang a bell, but when i googled him, turned out that i havent heard of him before....well, you live you learn...

thanks Dorin again for the great card!
