USA: Washington, DC

Today I received two cards from the USA. Both came from the capital of the United States, from Washington, DC (= District of Columbia). The city is famous for it's Monuments and Memorials. Some of them are represented on my cards. 

The first card shows the Iwo Jima Memorial. The memorial features the statues of the six servicemen who raised the second U.S. flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II, on February 23, 1945. In the back you can see the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building.


Stamp:
A Flag for All Seasons (from a set of four) - Issued: 16-08-2013


The second card shows some more Monuments and famous landmarks in DC. Clockwise from top left: Jefferson Memorial, Smithsonian Castle, Capitol Building, The White House, Lincoln Memorial and Wahsington Monument. So, Washington, DC is a very cultural city.



Stamps:
A Flag for All Seasons (from a set of four) - Issued: 03-05-2013 + 17-05-2013




Many thanks Georgia for these great cards!
