The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, at Arlington National Cemetery, was initially dedicated by the Army on Armistice Day, November 11, 1921, with the burial of an unknown service member from World War I.
Over the past century, additional unknowns have been buried at the Tomb.
The site has become a people’s memorial that inspires reflection on service, valor, sacrifice, and mourning.
We honor all who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
