The most symbolic site at Arlington is made of marble quarried from the Yule Marble Quarry near Marble, Colorado (as is the Lincoln Memorial) and was opened to the public on April 9, 1932. The Tomb is placed on the grave of the Unknown Soldier of World War I.
Graves of the Unknowns from World War II, Korea, and Vietnam are marked with white marble slabs on the plaza. The Tomb is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by the 3rd U. S. Infantry (The Old Guard). The sentinel takes 21 steps before turning and facing the Tomb for 21 seconds; this corresponds to the 21-gun salute, America's highest military honor.
Add this 3/4" thick keepsake replica of the Tomb to your home as a reminder of your visit. Handcrafted in Ohio.
