The custom at Arlington on Memorial Day is that all the
graves have a small flag set next to them to signify those
men that gave their lives for what they believe in. There
is also a big ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
with the President or others from our government and
dignitaries from other countries placing a wreath on the
tomb as a tribute to those whose names will never be known
who gave their lives for freedom and liberty.

Submitter comment: Learned from my uncle on a tour there.
