I loved visiting our Capitol. We had a private tour of the Capitol building thanks to our Senator. If you are visiting our Nation's Capitol, make sure and write your Senator and ask for tours. They can be very helpful. Most people were hearded around in the Capitol building in large groups of 15 to 20 people and had to wait in long lines. We however were taken from Senator Demint's office to the Capitol building via the underground tram system and had a personal tour with just the 4 of us.
One of the places we all wanted to visit in Washington was the Vietnam Wall. We had numerous friends and family members that served in Vietnam so it is very special to us all. I love this picture as it shows three indipendent groups of Hero's. First off there is the Wall itself showing all the names of the brave men and women who died fighting in the Vietnam war. If you don't get choked up at this wall then pack your bags and get out of my country. Whether you supported the war or not, these were all hero's that died for you. The second item of note in the picture is the Washington Memorial. George Washington was another hero or our country who fought for our freedom. Those early American Hero's set the stage for freedom in this country. The final hero's in this picture are the ones in the helicopter. Throughout our visit to Washington, there were helicopters in the air, making sure that our Nation's Capitol was safe. These people are working here at home to keep us all safe and I salute them.
Have a safe and wonderful day and thank the men and women that protect us for the freedom's that you have.
