The Society

The Society of The Honor Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Society) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to protecting and enhancing the welfare and image of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Tomb) and the soldiers (Tomb Guards) who stand guard, past and present.

The mission of the Society is to:

  • Educate the general public about the Tomb and the United States of America’s (U.S.) unknown war heroes.
  • Preserve the history and traditions relating to the Tomb.
  • Provide assistance to the Tomb and the current Tomb Guards and their families.

The goal of the Society is to make certain that the individuals that made the ultimate sacrifice of their life for our freedom are not forgotten, and that the general public understands this price of freedom.

The membership of the Society is made up of former and current Tomb Guards, and individuals and organizations who have an affinity for the Society mission.

The Society welcomes the opportunity to share our mission through our community outreach programs and events. And we encourage the participation of anyone interested in volunteering or donating in support of our mission.
