The special ceremony commemorating the Centennial of Taps at The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is being planned for Sunday November 7, 2021 in the Tanner Amphitheater (Old Amphitheater) at Arlington National Cemetery.

We commemorate The Centennial to remember the burial of the World War I Unknown Soldier, and also as an opportunity to reflect on what the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier means to America.
