"Arlington Memorial Amphitheater" is on the other side of the Tomb of Unknown Soldier Building, where the president speaks from on Memorial Day.  

The seats of "Arlington Memorial Amphitheater".  It was completed in 1921.  

Around 5,000 people attend the Memorial Dan and Veteran's Day ceremonies each year.  The structure is mostly built of Imperial Danby marble from Vermont.

Arlington National Cemetery welcome sign.  Taken while waiting for the tour bus to arrive.

  Waiting for the Tour Bus to arrive, which is just outside of the cemetery.  The National Park Service vehicles, Tourmobiles are permitted to enter the cemetery, but not the Old Town Trolley's which I rode.

   Waiting for the tour bus to arrive.  I don't know if these are cherry trees or not, but they're in bloom.  I think I was a couple weeks late for the cherry blossom peak in the tidal basin area.
