The weather for Memorial Day was spectacular and it looked like many people took advantage of it. The cemeteries were packed with people paying their respects to fallen soldiers. There is a powerful tribute right next to the Santa Monica pier, called Arlington West. It is composed of crosses for soldiers that have died during the recent wars. Here is a gallery of aerial photographs from the National Cemetery in West Los Angeles and from the Santa Monica beach.
