A National Memorial
George Washington Memorial Parkway

As processions pass over the Potomac River from Washington, DC, they go around Memorial Circle and prepare to enter the hallowed grounds of Arlington National Cemetery through Memorial Avenue, which is lined with statues and monuments to American heroes.
The bridge stands as a silent witness to these solemn processions and honors the sacrifice and valor of those honored dead.
