Description

''Here Rests In Honored Glory an American Soldier Known but to God''.   The Tomb of the Unknowns, near the center of the cemetery, is one of Arlington's most popular tourist sites. The Tomb contains the remains of unknown American soldiers from World Wars I and II, the Korean Conflict and (until 1998) the Vietnam War. Each soldier was presented with the Medal of Honor at the time of interment. The medals, as well as the flags which covered their caskets, are on display inside the Memorial Amphitheater, directly to the rear of the Tomb.


The Tomb is guarded 24-hours-per-day and 365-days-per year by specially trained members of the 3rd United States Infantry (The Old Guard). The Memorial Amphitheater has been the scene of the funerals of some prominent Americans (such as General John J. Black Jack Pershing) as well as the site of both Memorial Day and Veterans Days celebrations. This 2 1/2''W x 3 1/2''H magnet commemorates those unknown heroes.
