This weekend J and I traveled to Northern Virginia to visit my grandparents who live up there. After a nice lunch and some chatting at their home, we headed to see The National Museum of the Marine Corps. My grandfather was a Marine who fought in Vietnam and served in Iran. I felt very proud to be there with him.
If you're ever in the DC area, make the trip to this museum. It was an amazing experience. The museum runs strictly on private funds. It's amazing to see the way they have displayed the history of the Marine Corps.
And I'll say it again...incredible museum! We visited for about 3 hours, but I could have stayed for 3 more. There was just so much to see and read.
