1 month ago
The Centennial Committee has hit a milestone with the release of Centennial Tidbit #21 - Spotlight on Twenty-One Steps.In this second short "spotlight" you will see the first reactions from a mother and her daughter as they read the new children's book "Twenty-One Steps" for the first time. Both had seen the cover a few days before sitting down to read it, and they were excited to see what was behind the cover. They are asked to read a section and explain which of the artwork they liked and why.
In Centennial Tidbit #19 we talked talk to novelist, writer, and playwright Jeff Gottesfeld about his recent children's book "Twenty-One Steps" created for ages "two to 92". The art by the book was created by Matt Tavares.

Other than asking them to sit down and let us record this, it is unscripted and you can see their first reactions. They have relatives that are in law enforcement and the young girls comments on why she liked certain art work reminds us of the saying "from the mouths of babes".

What is it like to guard in bad weather?
The Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier are completely dedicated to their duty of guarding the Tomb. In fact, line eight of our Sentinel's Creed refers to the "discomfort of the elements". Because of their dedication, the weather does not bother them. In fact, it is considered an honor to walk the mat during inclement weather. It gets cold, it gets hot and the mission continues as it has unbroken since 1937.
