Members of the public will be permitted to lay flowers right in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington, Virginia, for the first time in nearly 100 years. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to access the tomb, which is usually saved for sentinels of the 3rd US Infantry Regiment, “The Old Guard.” The event is part of the centennial celebrations for the tomb. On November 9 and 10, Arlington National Cemetery will host The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Centennial Commemoration Public Flower Ceremony, a two-day event. The Unknown Soldier can be visited by anybody who wishes to pay their respects.
