**If your Club or organization is considering hosting this powerful and moving exhibit to your area in 2020 and/or 2021, now is the time to contact us and we will tell you if the date you desire is available and then send you the necessary information and forms to secure this exhibit for your event.
I suggest having both a primary and secondary date, as we are already beginning to get inquiries for both 2020 and 2021 since the 100th anniversary of The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is Nov. 11, 2021.
