    Awesome experience and information inside the amphitheater. Remember to keep your mouth shut, or you'll get a quick reminder from the guard.

    You must stay for the changing of the guards. Not a sound by anyone. Everyone was quite and this includes infants. I will be back here again. This was definitely a highlight of my week.

    Please, for the sake of the fallen soldiers, turn off the ringer on your cell phones. It's so inconsiderate when your phone rings during the ceremony.
