Tomb of the Unknown Soldier 2021 Plans - Centennial Tidbit #1 Release


Once again thank you for your support during these interesting times.  As I mentioned before the Society is going to start a series of short videos focusing on projects, supporters, and events leading up to the national commemoration of the Centennial of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in 2021.

For the month of September we are going to be focusing on the Never Forget Garden (NFG).  This first short video is an interview with the Project Director Richard Azzaro, and we will continue to talk about NFG with the American Rose Society in the next few weeks.

For those that have stepped up to help us with these tidbit videos, this is the rough format we will be working with as we move forward.  I will be reaching back to everyone who has expressed interest and give you a rough idea of the timeline, and what we are looking to talk about in the video.  Thank you for your patience as my normal work is crazy and some of my days off are taken from me.

The link to the first tidbit can be found here:

Thank you to everybody who has sent in pictures of their NFG.  We love seeing the progression and hearing the story behind why it's important.
