Event description

Description

Officially dedicated on November 11, 1921, the Tomb of the Unknown Solider pays homage to the U.S. Service Members that made the ultimate sacrifice for our Nation. They lost not only their lives, but their identity. This tour focuses not only on the selection of the Unknown for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, but on story of the Unknown from several wars buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Stops include the War of 1812 Unknown, Civil War Unknown, Sgt. Younger (who selected the Unknown for the Tomb), and finish with a tour of the Memorial Amphitheater and watching the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
