The young lady who gave us the tour...

The young lady who gave us the tour at Arlington was amazing. She did a wonderful job and appreciate her time and work. Why this is a 2 is that there was essentially no tour at the American history museum. Was told to be there at 1pm. No one called or showed up or anything.
