    Donna was excellent - so knowledgeable. She told many stories at the Arlington cemetery. My kids (ages 16, 14 and 12) were engaged the whole time. She was fun to eat lunch with too...we asked her many questions. Finally, we were able to maneuver through the American History with ease thanks to her guidance. She showed us the highlights and lingered on the things that we would be interested in. Donna was wonderful, highly recommend!
