Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to observe the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery in our nation's capital. It is quite a site to watch. After observing this ceremony, it really makes one think about those individuals who have served our country for us. My father served in WWII. My grandfather served in WWI. My great-great-grandfather was taken prisoner by the Confederates in the Civil War in Virginia and died at Andersonville, GA as a prisoner-of-war. I am sure each of us can think of at least one person they have known who has served or is serving our country right now. Take a moment and say "Thank You for Your Service."
