Tomb Reflections

Mr. Eaton served at the Tomb in 1938, 1939 and 1940. He was attached to the 5th Engineers at Ft. Humphreys (Belvoir). This was back in the day when TG’s performed two-week rotations in and out from Ft. Humphreys, Ft. Washington and Ft. Myer. Ft. Belvoir was dismissed from the rotation on January 16, 1941.
