Arlington Christmas Wreaths

A National and Personal Wonderland

When my brother, Bill, and I were 9 and 8,
Arlington National Cemetary was our great

watched the changing of the guard more times

their six-gun-salutes.  We collected many
shell casings and we examined tombstones
great and small as well as all the monuments.
