With the pandemic causing a restriction on everything in the country, friends and loved ones were not permitted into the famous cemetery along the Potomac River unless they were directly related to a fallen soldier buried there.

So Domenech took to Twitter on Memorial Day, offering to visit grave-sites on behalf of the friends who couldn’t be there in person this year.

Her tweet which has been liked more than 40,000 times and retweeted nearly 10,000 times, Domenech wrote, “Does anyone have buddies buried in Arlington who they would like visited today? Since only family members are allowed in, I would be honored to pay respects on your behalf.”

She enlisted the help of her mom and dad, who came to Arlington National Cemetery to help take photos for the last hour.

Even though everything we have known has been disrupted, but we are forever grateful for the sacrifices of the servicemen and women who have given their lives for our nation’s founding.

Verse of the Day

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. — Ephesians 2:10 (NIV)
