The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

 Arlington National Cemetery


The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery stands atop a hill overlooking Washington, D.C.

This story is told in a video sent in by Libby Haynes, an avid airline and Eastern enthusiast. Her friend who works with her in the American Legion, Dan Dennison, Unknown Soldier Post Historian, tells us the history of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier who died in World War 1 and was buried in the U.S. Cemetery in France; his body was brought back to the U.S.

On March 4, 1921, Congress approved the burial of an unidentified American soldier from World War I in the plaza of the new Memorial Amphitheater.  Inscribed on the back of the Tomb are the words:

"Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God."

"Soldiers never die unless their forgotten." So the tomb is guarded 24 hours a day . The Tomb Guards never let them be forgotten. The guards take 21 steps back and forth on the mat, to symbolize the 21 Gun Salute...the highest honor given...as well as each turn they stop for 21 seconds and again in front of the tomb for 21 seconds to honor them.

By Mary Grady

A monument to the helicopter crews of the Vietnam War will be placed at Arlington Cemetery, after a long uphill fight by advocates.

What Is FAA Hiding from the Public? And Why??
Posted on Aviation Reform

FAA, like many federal agencies, has a nasty habit of expending lots of time and money working to keep the people in the dark. They are supposed to comply with FOIA laws, but instead they redact the hell out of what should be disclosed. Making matters worse, in recent decades it seems as though most in Congress are ‘too busy’ and/or ‘too inert’ to force FAA to follow the FOIA laws. Every once in a while, we get a great chance to look past these barriers. See more...Newsletter-on-line 2017
