ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY As the birds are singing their sweet melody, the terrain of Arlington National Cemetery is filled with sadness. Although the brilliant rays of the sun are shining through the thick treetops, there is a chill in the air. While watching the mourners, the feeling of their sorrow is all too real. Thousands of headstones in the far distance create a magnificent maze against the horizon.

(1)Most people don’t know much about where most of the patriot prisoners in the Revolutionary war were held. During the Revolutionary war, the prisoners on the prison ships suffered through some of the most horrible conditions you could make someone suffer through in a prison. (2)During the American Revolution many of the prisons on land were over filled with prisoners. The British even used decrepit buildings they didn’t use like colleagues and city halls but once those were full they came up with the idea to use retired or decommissioned ships as prisons, but even those got full and crowded. One of the most famous of the prison ships were the HMS Jersey, which was in Wallabout Bay.

Therefore, we need Michael’s guidance to either purchase the radios in FY16-17. If we are going to purchase the radios in FY16-17, we need to discuss the funding source for the radios.
In The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Maya Lin employs rhetorical devices in order to elucidate, the gross cost of the Vietnam Conflict in U.S. lives. The minimalist design used in the Vietnam Veterans Memorial emphasizes the overwhelming amount of human lives lost. On the Wall, a small diamond is depicted next to the names of people confirmed dead, if a person is MIA(Missing in Action) they get a small cross next to their name. The cross can easily be carved into a diamond if the person is confirmed dead ,or turned into a circle, a symbol of life, if they are found alive.

Every year, thousands of volunteers travel to Arlington, Va. to lay wreathes on the tombstones in Arlington National Cemetery. Wreathes Across America organizes the event each year, and this year, the day to lay wreathes was Saturday, December 17. Thousands of volunteers showed up to honor fallen soldiers, despite the nasty weather conditions that day. This year was the 25th anniversary of the event, and organizers estimated that over 245,000 wreathes were placed on tombstones throughout the day. Many volunteers felt that, despite the frigid temperatures and hazardous road conditions, it was important to come out and show support for fallen soldiers because they fought and died in conditions that were far worse.
I believe that the money we spend on memorials are spent the way in should. There is nothing better to spend money on the remembering people that have done things special in our lives. The money is spent to build memorials that we can visit to remember the brave things that people have done for us. The tomb of the unknown soldier has people who show up to watch the laying of the wreath to remember those who was unable to be identified.
