A Call to Honor: the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Replica Event
Honor the Anniversary - See the Replica - Learn the History
To honor the 100th Anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, (1921-2021), there will be a two-day commemorative event at the South Dakota Military Heritage Alliance, 1600 W Russell St, Sioux Falls, SD 57104. It will feature the travelling exhibit "A Call to Honor: The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Replica". This is an authentic, 1/2 scale reproduction of the monument located in Arlington National Cemetery.
This is open to the public, free of charge, on Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 between 9 am and 5 pm. Throughout this time, programs will be held on stage including live patriotic music and guest speakers. As a special tribute, the Singing Legionnaires will perform on Saturday at 10:30 am and the Sioux Falls Municipal Band will play in concert on Sunday at 3 pm.
Our goal is to provide a fun, family event where everyone can "see" this monument, learn the history behind its creation, hear the story of what it represents and understand the dedication of those who guard our unknown soldiers.
Sponsored by the Mary Chilton Chapter, NSDAR, the South Dakota Society Daughters of the American Revolution, the Mary Chilton Foundation, and the South Dakota Military Heritage Alliance.
