Over the past few months the Centennial Committee has been working on the next edition to the stories behind the transportation of the Unknown Soldiers to the United States mainland.

The first edition Olympia Marines - With the Hand of God was released in March 2020 and focused on the 1921 mission. The follow up edition focuses on the 1958 mission to bring home the World War II and Korean War Unknown Soldiers.

This edition is also written by Joseph Robert Neubeiser who served in the United States Marine Corps from 1968 -1971. He was commissioned a second lieutenant upon graduation from Mt. St. Mary’s College. Trained at Quantico as a communications officer and served with the 3rd Marine Division in Vietnam in 1969 as a platoon commander and company commander. He has published a number of human-interest stories for various national and local newspapers. He retired from the Federal government after 34 years as a Senior Executive.
