Washington D.C. air defense missiles & that little accident at the Lincoln Memorial in World War
Just a short video today because I'm planning on some big walks in the next few days to take advantage of the upcoming good weather.
You don't wake up in the morning wanting to make a video about air defense systems, but sometimes that's just how the day progresses. Today I bring up an often-told story about the only structure in Washington DC to come under fire during World War II. We also spin outside the Beltway to get a look at some of the current air defense systems protecting the National Capital Region. I also got some lunch.

PenguinSix is an apolitical guy in a political town who likes to walk a lot. He has hiked over 17,000 miles (27,000kms) in the past six years and is still walking today. He is an American expat who spent the last decade in Hong Kong with his family and is now back in Washington DC, continuing his daily ritual of taking very long hikes around the city catching the sights and sounds of the city while live streaming to share with others. History, culture, life as an expat (with reverse culture shock), and the patheticness of the Chinese food in Washington DC are regular topics of discussion.
