The Kennedy Gravesite at Arlington National Cemetery

Mr. Hunter and I had the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C., for the first time recently.  And we were glad to have the chance to go out to Arlington National Cemetery while we were there.  It felt right to visit the Kennedy family gravesite on Veterans Day weekend and as the country prepared to mark the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's death.

Mr. Hunter and I paid our respects at the Kennedy family grave.

Mr. Hunter and one of JFK's most famous quotes.

The grave of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.

To the right of Jackie Kennedy's grave, there is a headstone
that reads simply, "Daughter."

The grave of infant Patrick Bouvier Kennedy.
John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s ashes were apparently scattered
in the Atlantic Ocean.

The eternal flame.
