Arlington Cemetery - Wreath Laying Ceremony

At the time of this writing, I've been an American citizen for just under two weeks.  Two days ago I flew to Washington DC to surprise a friend of mine, Bobby Litchge.

Bobby is a 90 year old veteran of World War 2.  He's as tough as they come and still incredibly active.  He's someone I really admire on so many levels.

Along with three other veterans from S.E. Indiana, he was tasked with laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  It turned out to be a 22 hour day for me but what a privilege it was to be there!

Here's the video... (My friend, Bobby is the guy in the front row on the right during the ceremony).
