When President John F. Kennedy visited Arlington National Cemetery in 1963, he was so taken by the view of Washington, D.C., that he remarked "I could stay here forever." It was more than a fleeting thought. He mentioned it again to Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, who was with him that day. This view of his always-crowded grave is taken from the Lee mansion at Arlington's highest point. (Photo/WWR)
