Our Honor and Privilege to Represent

It is an honor for us to represent both the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the amazing Guards, past and present, who have and are guarding the Tomb and the crypts of the unknowns.

We also consider it a privilege for four of us to be Associate Members of the SHGTUS, as well as we share this beautiful and powerful exhibit, as we travel this country to encourage communities to join in in honoring the TUS Centennial next year.

If any of the former guards will be close to the exhibit, it would be our honor to have you there to talk to our visitors about your experience as a Tomb Guard. If you can attend any of our appearances, please notify me at (706)766-8451 or at my email. I hope some of you can join us.

We Never Forget,

Bill King, Maj., USAF(ret.), Project Manager
