"Journey Home" by SSG Sara Corry (TUSAB)
9 months ago
As the Centennial of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier continues this year, we wanted again to share with you the work SSG Sara Corry of The United States Army Band "Pershing's Own" (TUSAB).
We approached the band and Sara back in 2018 to try an capture the emotions and meaning behind the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in music. Sara was able to write an original composition called "Journey Home" and in May 2019 presented a portion of it for the Memorial Day Concert, played by the Herald Trumpets.
We hope you enjoys this and we look forward to our continued work with TUSAB and the Army to highlight this outstanding piece of music.

What is the process to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier?
Wreath laying ceremonies are conducted thousands of times each year by many organizations. If you are going soon, there is likely no availability for conducting this ceremony as the slots fill up at least six months in advance. Please visit arlingtoncemetery.mil for more detailed information and to request that honor if you are part of an organization planning a visit.
Wreaths are provided or arranged to be delivered by the public. All questions you may have about that ceremony can be answered on the ANC website or through the cemetery staff.
