June 1998

I first saw President and Mrs. Kennedy graves in of June 1998. After visiting their graves right after 9/11, I walked up the hill where Arlington House is. After walking up the hill I was able to get a very good view of what the Pentagon looked like after the September 11 attacks. And what I saw in person and what was shown on t.v. was very different.

The eternal flame was out on the September 2003 visit. You could here the clicking sound like it wanted to be relight and you could smell the gas.

In October of 2005 while I was on vacation in Boston, I made a stop to see the Kennedy family plot in Brookline, Ma and also while I was in Hyannis, Ma I did a boat tour that took you by the Kennedy compound. To see pictures of the Kennedy graves and compound, scroll down.
