Last weekend my grandfather received an all-expenses-paid trip to D.C. courtesy of the Honor Flight Network, an organization that sends World War II veterans from around the country to visit the World War II memorial, among others.
We also visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery:
Before I arrived in D.C. I stopped in Baltimore, where my friends showed me the former Blacks-only pool at Druid Hill Park. The pool is now filled with earth, a memorial to segregation.
