Let's go to Washington D.C. for the 2017 Veterans Day weekend and celebrate us and our time in military service!
Veteran's Day will be on 11 November (Saturday) in 2017. We'll plan on leaving 9 Nov and return 12 Nov (Thu-Sun). That'll give us time for traveling, touring, having fun, and returning home.
Our main mission is to visit the "Women in Military Service for America Memorial"...aka the Women's War Memorial.
You can go to this site to register your military story with the memorial....http://www.womensmemorial.org/ Do it before the trip and you'll be able to look yourself up in their database when we get there.
We will also like to do a tour of the major landmarks of the DC area. These are some of the landmarks we're thinking of...
-Tomb of the Unknown Soldier/Changing of the Guard
-The Vietnam Women's Memorial
-The Korean War Veterans Memorial -The Smithsonian
