Prince Harry, who recently returned from a deployment to Afghanistan, first visited Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery, where veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are buried.
He left a wreath with a personal note by the grave of a soldier who died in Afghanistan.
Prince Harry next visited the JFK memorial, to honor the 50th anniversary of the U.S. president's death.
Finally, he laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier.
The color guard had to fight adoring throngs of people to make their way to the wreath laying cermony.
