Display Room at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Jun 16, 2012
When we were done with the change of guard ceremony at the Tomb of the unknown soldier, we went up to the display room which is located at the back of the Amphitheater. It is not so big, but enough to house the different medals of honor given to the veterans of the different wars fought by American soldiers.

The medals and flags given to the unknown soldiers, Vietnam and Korean veterans, world war I and II, the Spanish and Mexican wars. You kind of get a feel for the loss of a nation,but mostly the pain of loved ones.

If you find yourself at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier, do visit the display room, it is interesting to say the least.

Indeed, most of these soldiers in war are barely 25 years old.

Have been there and I think the displays make you realize that it is always about people, often way too young. Good to be reminded every now and then.
