Christmas At Arlington

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...

Greater love hath no man but this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13

I loved visiting Arlington cemetery, but we went in the heat of summer. Winter gives that kind of solitude, a more somber solitude, of grief for our losses. But also pride in our sacrifices as a nation. Thanks Jan!
