Tomb of the Unknowns 

"Here Rests In Honored Glory An American Soldier Known But To God"

On Monday, April 18, 2005, Robin Bateman and Sara Ehrlich, representing the Soldiers' Angels Foundation had the honor of presenting a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. Robin Bateman requested this opportunity and received a letter of permission from the Director of Ceremonies and Special Events-Memorial Affairs Division to present a wreath donated by Soldiers Angels following the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

There were many visitors present as well as a school group and a group of Boy Scouts from MA also presenting wreaths that day.

Each member of Soldiers Angels and each of our deployed heroes was there in spirit as the wreath was presented and Taps were played for those "Known But to God".

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).

After receiving detail instructions, Sara and Robin walk down the steps toward the tomb.
