ABMC continues to honor the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
For a 100 years now, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier has represented America's eternal dedication to honoring not just the unknowns buried within the Tomb, but all unknown service members who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation, including those honored at American Battle Monuments Commission (ABMC) sites around the world.
Not only were remains transferred from ABMC sites for the Tomb of the Unknown selections, but ABMC is charged every day with telling the stories of the more than 7,500 unknown burials of World War I and World War II honored in our cemeteries and over 90,000 missing from the World Wars, Korea, and Vietnam who are memorialized by name of the walls of the missing at our cemeteries and monuments.
