One thought on “President Truman at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

  1. November 11 is my birthday. I was at this event in 1947 on my 7th birthday. My Uncle Jim was a drummer in the Army Band and he was able to get my parents and my sister and I to be there for this ceremony. My uncle continued in the military and in 1963, he was lead drummer in the same band and was features in the funeral procession for President Kennedy’s funeral service and his drum and other items from that day are within the Jackie Kennedy exhibit in the First ladies section in the Smithsonian!
