Today on your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Washington DC , you’re going to be visiting the United States Marine Corps Memorial , better known as the Iwo Jima Statue .
You’ve taken the DC Metro so many times that you’ve become an expert on riding the Metro .
The first thing that you notice is how CLEAN the trains are.
No eating , drinking or loud radio playing .
You can even understand what the conductor’s saying .
You’ve mastered Washington DC Metro etiquette 101.
When the bell chimes, that means that the doors are going to close and they aren’t going to be opening again, so you’d better wait for the next train.
The sign above you tells you when that next train to Ronald Reagan National Airport or Washington Nationals ballpark is coming .
The lights blinking on and off on the platforms tells you that the next train is pulling into the station .
You happen to be going to the United States Marine Corps Memorial , better known as the Iwo Jima Statue .
You could get off at the Arlington National Cemetery Metro station , but you’d have to walk through the cemetery to get to the statue.
The easiest way to get to the statue is to get off at the Rosslyn Metro station and walk a couple of blocks .
You can’t miss this statue because it is HUGE and oh so beautiful to look at in person .
Pictures don’t seem to do it justice .
There doesn’t seem to be a lot of people who come to see the statue as compared to some of the other monuments and memorials in the city.
Why that is, you don’t know.
It could be that this statue is out of the way compared to the other memorials and monuments .
This statue is a statue that should be seen, especially in the evening .
Words can’t describe it and while you’re visiting , no selfies .
This isn’t the place.
Let someone else take the picture for you.
Like the National World War I I Memorial , this is the place to reflect what might have been if World War I I had ended differently .
