Tomb Reflections

As a former Tomb Guard I have had the honor to be asked by VFW posts, schools, DAR and SAR groups, and many others to talk about ANC and the unknowns. It has come to my attention as to how many people out there are ignorant about both. It has been an honor to educate them. Many things have changed over the years since my service there (1954-55), but I guarantee there has not been change in my commitment to honor the Unknowns.
