Tomb of the Unknowns

Marines organizing themselves for an early morning photograph on the steps in front of the Tomb of the Unknowns

This week I’ve had the honor to document this special slab of marble dedicated to the unidentified fallen from wars past and present. A pair of cracks have been steadily growing across the surface since 1963.  The Tomb will be repaired rather than replaced, as decided by the Army Corps of Engineers last fall. More here.
