20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Farewell at Arlington Cemetary

Our family was at Arlington Cemetery for the funeral of a relative. My niece was mesmerized by the whole ceremony and was touched by a guard who kneeled in front of her to talk about that both he and her relative had served the country so that she, and all of us, could be free. He then gave her a little bag with the shell casings from the gun salute.
