Memorial Day – Arlington Memorial Cemetery

Posted By on May 26, 2008

Pres Bush Memorial Day 2008Although I’m not rewriting my Memorial Day post (frustrated that it has been lost after I posted Sunday night — grrr), I will include the 11 minute clip from CBS telling the history of Arlington Memorial Cemetery. On Monday, President Bush paid tribute to America’s service personnel who died in service to their country at this hallowed cemetery. “It is a solemn reminder of the cost of freedom that the number of headstones in a place such as this grows with every new Memorial Day,” said President Bush. “In a world where freedom is constantly under attack and in a world where our security is challenged, the joys of liberty are often purchased by the sacrifices of those who serve a cause greater than themselves.”
