It has been 100 years since America's entrance into the War to End all Wars... The Great War... World War I.
This powerful movie encapsulates the Military History of the world famous Doughboys.
After the great war, England and France dedicated a tomb of the Unknown Soldier, shortly after them our Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was also dedicated.
On this historic centennial day, American Hero John Glenn was also laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery. Here is a picture of Major Glenn, from July 1953 as he returned to his base after his second Mig kill in the Korean War. The red on the side of his Sabre jet is for the first enemy fighter he shot down a few days before.
The Marine Corps conducted John Glenn's funeral, each branch conducts the services for their service members.
