4- One each from WWI, WWII, Korea, & Vietnam. With the advancement of DNA it was somewhat difficult to find one from Vietnam.
ah no there is three because of dna they identified one and moved him to a seperate grave sight
I remember being there in the snowstorm of '93 and it was quite a sight to see them still holding their post in the freezing drizzle. Impressive.
I saw it in 2009 I think. Im gunna go with 3.
You are right dramley they had to remove the Vietnam Vet because they ID'ed him through DNA and had to move him, but there were four there for awhile.
Remember that hurricane out their and they still held their posts
I read that during tornados or hurricanes that they can come inside from their post but that they never have
But do you remeber the date,name,branch of service and rank of the soldier? Though sad as it is,it is an amazing duty to watch. Year was 1998
"Known only to God."
Lt. Micheal Blassie of the U.S. Airforce was identified and removed from the tomb of the unknown soldier. Congress said that the others were to remain and there would not be anymore bodies to go into the tomb.
None... you don't bury bodies in a tomb.
