Day 8

By Christy Welscher and Morgan Roppe

We started out the day early in the morning so we could be the first group at Mount Vernon, home of George Washington. We took a tour of the house and walked around the property. After we got back on the bus Dave gave us our own American flags as he prepared us for Arlington Cemetery. At the cemetery we looked at many of the gravestones of the men and women who died for our country. We saw many famous tombstones, including the Kennedy family and Audie Murphy (the most decorated soldier). At 1 o’clock in the afternoon, the four class officers separated from the group to receive instructions for the laying of the wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. After receiving the instructions, they returned to their group to watch the changing of the guard. When the time came, the four officers lined up and were led down the stairs by one of the guards. The wreath was placed by the president and the vice president; it was a very moving moment for everyone. After the wreath laying, our class had an emotional moment together that we will never forget.

After we left Arlington Cemetery, we traveled to the Marine Memorial. Six classmates re-enacted the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima. While we were at the memorial, we talked to a veteran who fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima. After talking to the veteran, everyone in our class shook his hand and thanked him for his service. Next we all got dressed up for a night at the theatre. First, we promenaded into Phillip’s Seafood Buffet. We enjoyed a great meal in each other’s company.  Afterwards we took pictures on the dock and then headed to the Kennedy Center. There we saw the play “Shear Madness,” a murder mystery. The play was wonderful, and the actors were hilarious. After the play when we got on the bus it was a bitter sweet moment. Dave informed us that it was our last night in DC and that he would miss our family. It was a day filled with all sorts of emotions.
