Arlington National Cemetery: An Honor Roll of Immigrants
Saturday, October 6, 2018 - 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
This tour is also available on Oct. 13. Additional tours focused on Latino members are scheduled for Oct. 5 and Oct. 12.
The more than 400,000 service members buried at Arlington National Cemetery represent a cross-section of both the diversity of the American military and our nation itself.
From the Revolutionary era through the present, Americans born in other countries have made countless contributions to the nation. Visit the graves of the founder of the nuclear navy; one of the Marines who raised the flag over Iwo Jima; a pioneer in the development of cryptology; a Pakistani American who gave his life in Iraq; the only foreign-born chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and the creator of the oral polio vaccine, among other.
Jim Carr, a master Washington tour guide and author, leads the tour.
This tour is two hours and length and meets inside the Arlington National Cemetery Welcome Center next to Memorial Drive. Note: Please allow extra time to go through the Welcome Center's security area before the start of this tour.
