Geocache Description:

A 3 stage multi that starts off in Arlington Cemetary and of course the final is elsewhere.
The first two stages are located within Arlington National Cemetary and the final is due south.

Stage one:You will need go in the visitor center to find out where he is buried, unless you already know. (Who is he? Well the title will be a give away for some, others will need to more searching.)

Stage two: Go to his burial site and while facing his stone count 5 stones to the left then 5 stones going forward. Looking at the stone (initals JWZ), write down the dates and then use them below

A. Second digit in the day he was born. (ex.=19th =9)
B. Year of Death plus 26.
C. Number of the birth month divided by 3. (ex. jan=1, feb=2,etc.)
D. Last digit in birth year times 2.
E. Third digit in death year minus 6.
F. Number of death month minus 4.

Stage three:Take the information you have collected at stage 2 and apply it to what you see below.
N38 AB.BBB
W77 0C.DEF

You have done the hard work, now do the easy part and drive out of the cemetary and retrieve the final cache.

There are other caches within Arlington Cemetary that honor other veterans and family members, their lives are no less than the one life this cache is based on.
