Cache Attributes

Kid Friendly Access Fee Required Available in Winter Limited Hours Listed on OCNA Only 

Please see the attributes article for more information.

Description   EN   

The coordinates will bring you to a small memorial located on the lawn near a corner.  It is set a bit apart from other markers, but if you have trouble determining the exact spot, use the picture.  The pictured tree is directly behind and overhanging the memorial.

In order to claim a find on this cache, e-mail me the answers to the following questions

1. What is this memorial?

2. What date is at the bottom of the memorial?

In addition, in order to log a find, you need to have physically visited this cache's location. In other words, please no armchair logging.

There is technically no access fee for Arlington National Cemetery, but I have added this attribute as there is a fee for parking in ANC's parking lot.  Visit http://www.arlingtoncemetery.mil/ for additional information on directions, parking, etc.

Tree overhanging the memorial

This tree overhangs the memorial.

It's still there, 3 1/2 years later! Thanks for creating this cache, and highlighing this little known Memorial. Coordinates led me right to it.

1 15 December 2013 sfcchaz Found it

I spent the day in and around DC geocaching. My main goal was to locate a few caches in a couple of the alternate games. I walked over 10 miles and grabbed 11 caches in 3 different games today. This was one of three in the OCUS game I got along the way.

Being a broadcast Television/Radio engineer for my entire adult life, 20 years of it in the US Army, this one holds special significance for me. Thanks for placing this cache. Email on the way. TNLN TFTC

I found this one after watching the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknowns.  Nice day with cloud cover as this could be a real bear in the heat.  Thanks!

2490.  This was my first find of the day, on the way to 2500, and 1 of 2 at Arlington National Cemetery.  Figured it was finally time someone logged an FTF on this cache.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
