Trey had never seen the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, I went but it was years and years ago, so we also stopped to see that. We were also able to wait around and see the changing of the guard ceremony.

We were actually able to look up his location online, it is done by section number then gravesite number. We didn't realize until after we found his gravesite that the tombstones actually had the gravesite numbers on the back and actually went in order! At least we know for next time, so it's easier to find. Luckily we started off in the correct general area so we didn't have to search for too long to find him.
There were wreaths on each grave in his section, they are a part of the Wreaths Across America project. That link takes you to the Arlington Cemetery website, as long as it is the month of December it should tell you about that project.

It was an awesome pit stop on our trip home that we plan to make a habit!
