To each soldier, no matter what rank or station, whether decorated hero or unknown, belongs a place of honor. The granite and marble markers and memorials reflect the tides of American history, beginning in the Civil War and cresting since in times of armed conflict.

There are many notable persons buried here. President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis lie here where Cape Cod stones frame the eternal flame at their graves. His brother Robert Kennedy lies alone on the hillside near JFK. World heavyweight champion boxer Joe Lewis served his country in World War II and is buried near the Tomb of the Unknowns. Actor Audie Murphy was one of the most decorated soldiers in World War II. President William Howard Taft is also buried here. These are a few of the well known soldiers here. However, every one here is special and should be honored for their service and protection of our liberty and freedom.
