Mike Aleksick Day Three

Today we got up around 530 to get ready to go to the FBI training center, which was awesome. The FBI training center had a lot of cool things that i didn't know they had there for training purposes. They had a huge city built by Walt Disney so they could train and make it feel realistic. they also have 20 or so people that they pay to act in these scenarios the make for the students. The FBI training facility was one of the coolest things we have done on the trip so far I think. We then headed to some on the national monuments like U.S. Marine War Memorial and the Arlington Cemetery. These were absolutely amazing. They were the coolest thing i have ever seen when it comes to monuments. They were so massive and inspirational. The cemetery was the most interesting because we got to see the unknown soldiers monument where they did the changing of the guard and colors. These were cerimony they did when they changed the guard who guarded the memorial and when they changed flower arangement. When they changed the guard it was so intense. The soldiers did the exact same steps and moved the same way. It was like they were the same person almost. Today was a wonderful day and i cant wait to see what we have in store for us tomarrow.
