阿灵顿国家公墓 (Arlington National Cemetery) :1864513

每一年的阵亡将士纪念日 (Memorial Day) ,阿灵顿国家公墓都会在无名 英雄冢 (Tomb of the Unknowns) 上摆置一个花圈。这个墓地埋葬着在第一次世界大战、第二次世界大战,韩战,以及越战中死亡的无名士兵。不过,埋葬在阿灵顿国家公墓的24万人并非全部都是军人。你也会发现约翰.肯尼迪 (John F. Kennedy) 与贾桂琳.肯尼迪.欧那西斯 (Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis) 等人的墓碑。这个地点本身从过去就一直都充满着许多动人的故事。

Each year, Memorial Day is honored at Arlington by placing a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns. The Tomb houses the remains of unknown servicemen from World War I, World War II, the Korean conflict, and the Vietnam War. Not all of the 240,000 people buried at Arlington are soldiers. You can also find the graves of John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. The location itself is full of fascinating stories from the past.
