Throwback Tuesday: Iwo Jima

Last weekend us Butler interns went on a tour of D.C. and one of the first stops we made was to the Iwo Jima memorial. It is right next to the Arlington National Cemetary and it honors all of our nation’s marines. One of the cool aspects of the memorial is that when you walk around it, it appears as though the soldiers are lifting the flag upright.

From the memorial you can see the U.S. Capitol Building and the Washington Monument. It’s definitely a beautiful sight to see. Also near the monument are other monuments from other countries thanking the United States for their involvement in World War 2. One includes a really cool monument donated by The Netherlands to the U.S.

There are so many other awesome monuments in the city and I want to take the opportunity to try to see most of them! Hopefully I can find the time!
