Good slideshow

NBC Washington News has a good slideshow from Arlington National Cemetery this weekend. The first picture is a doosy, and there are several in there that will make your eyes well up.

President Obama decided to check out of this Memorial Day at the Cemetery, and instead went home for the weekend. Personally, I think that was the better move for a president that hasn't the slightest clue about the sacrifice our military goes through every day. Vice President Joe Biden was there though, and although he never served in the military, his son is in the Delaware National Guard, so he has some respect for the men and women in uniform. I'll even give him brownie points for not having a silly grin on his face during the wreath laying ceremony like some of the political looking folks in the picture; instead he has a hard grimace as one would expect during such a service.

Good stuff!
