My son has the opportunity this June to go on a week long school trip to Washington D.C.. As his father he has asked me to go along with him on this trip since I now have the time to do so (I am active duty military and time together has been limited because of deployments).

Since the military pay is not that great, I am looking to raise up to $6000 to fund this trip. This trip is through Educational Travel Services, Inc. and the following is a list of places he will get to visit.

Day 1: (Arrival & drive to Williamsburg)
Colonial Williamsburg
Hands on Education Program in Colonial Williamsburg

Day 2:
Jamestown Settlement
Jamestown Island
Drive to Charlottesville
Monticello (Home of Thomas Jefferson)
Drive to Washington, D.C.

Day 3:
Ford's Theatre, Petersen House
The National Archives
Bureau of Engraving and Printing tour
Smithsonian Complex
FDR Memorial
Jefferson Memorial
WWII Memorial
Iwo Jima Memorial

Day 4:
Arlington National Cemetery (Take place in a special wreath laying ceremony)
Capitol Tour and Gallery Tickets
Library of Congress
Visit one of these Museums: Newseum, Spy Museum, Crime & Punishment Museum

Day 5:
Tour of Mt. Vernon
Last minute personal sightseeing.
Depart back home



This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for my son and I. We live on the west coast and this will be the biggest chance that he gets to spend with his father all by himself. I think this will be a great opportunity to spend it in such an educational environment (especially when it comes to the military memorials).
