Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Faces Repair or Replacement

December 2007
Military History;Dec2007, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p11
The article reports on the debate over the repair or replacement of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Virginia. Constructed in 1932, the crypts are dedicated to the unknown infantrymen of World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The debate arose when officials from the nonprofit National Trust for Historic Preservation read a June 2006 report from the cemetery that addressed the tomb's structural integrity. Alarmed by a determination to either enclose the tomb monument or replace it, the trust took its concerns to Congress.
