Arlington National Cemetery heightens accessibility for visitors

An interesting event is taking place at the National Cemetery in Arlington, VA.

The Braille flag says the words, “red, white, and blue,” and also has the pledge of allegiance written across the stripes.

Now, blind veterans and visitors alike can literally get a feel for the flag that strikes awe in so many others at Arlington.
