Please arrive early enough to be seated for the bell ringing.

On Veterans Day this year, the people of the United States will mark the passage of 100 years since the interment of an unidentifiable member of the American Expeditionary Forces of World War I in Arlington National Cemetery.  This iconic place of interment has come to be known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.  It is regarded as America's most sacred shrine.  As intended, it is dedicated to all that have served and sacrificed for America in times of war or armed conflict from the American Revolution to the present, and to those yet to come.
