 There was a  total of  92 bikes in the escort .But from outside KC there was only one bike escorting them down to Jane,Mo. that bike was ours.We had old glory
flying behind us on the bike.People slauted us as they past.Some cars & trucks stayed in the left lane behind us for a bit .

Congrats Cindy! I’m moved with this great effort to honor the fallen braves in Mo. My visits to Arlington more than 30 years ago and witnessing the changing of guards are still vivid in my memory. Salutation & God bless!

I like this I wish more people would salute our soldiers from the fallen to the forgotten to the cripled to the solderiers now serving . If it werenot for them no one in Greatest nation on Earth would have any of the rights they have now . So thank a veteran often .

Thanks Cindy, very moving, we have a stretch of highway being referred to as the Highway of fallen Hero's, when our fallen come home, many people line the highway to pay homage to our brave young defenders, both Women and Men when they are brought home to be laid to rest. Thanks again BilkerBabe

Thanks Cindy in your effort, in honoring our fallen soldiers.  Being a veteran myself, the greatest compliment is when someone says to me "Thank you for service".  Again, "Thank You".

WWI ,WWII & Vet-Nam  = this "Tomb of The Unknown Soldier" is a Memorial
deicated to all of  the soldiers who died - it was hard back then to tell
which body part belonged to who.So they made a momument to represent all soldiers
to show their families that they were not forgotten & never will be !! Most of the riders in the escort were & are in the armed forces.
this is a replica of that in a 3/4 scale made out of Marble . To me it stands for the very thing that it represents !! I can't see the keyboard -
IT WAS A HONORED EVENT ESPECIALLY  LOOKING INTO EYES THAT HAVE SEEN THINGS THAT HAVE SEEN SO MUCH PAIN IN THEIR DYING
BUDDIES EYES -

To me it covers all of them - The Tomb it self represents ALL WHO DIED IN BATTLE - NO MATTER WHICH WARS THE DATES REPRESENT! I 
HONOR ALL SOLDIERS THAT FOUGHT & ARE STILL FIGHTING!!! WWI VETS DESERVE HONORS AS WELL !!! FOR ALL SOLDIERS
 SHOULD NOT BE FORGOTTEN!! NO MATTER WHICH WARS IN THE PAST - THEY GAVE ALL - FOR US !
#34 | 1669 days ago

Thank you for that Cindy.  Thank you for representing all of us who wish we could have been there with pride and honor.

It's always a pleasure seeing people honor our Veterans.
#35 | 1669 days ago

I applaud you for your actions, only wish it did not take this long to actually take us so long to start honoring falling vets or those who served and came home long ago and not treated as well. Glad we are finally respecting soldiers dedicating their lives for us!

The traveling tomb travels all over the USA along with other replicas: the wall &the tiger cage.They had the tiger cage there with the tomb.
This cage was a horrible site to many soldiers - it was constructed from bamboo & stripped bamboo bark.They used it to trap tigers in
-hence the name.They would capture a group of soldiers & place them inside.Whoever has watched a "Rambo " movie where he went to
rescue POWs- the movie was correct on how they used the cages.Many died in cages-many were kept alive to torture.Soldiers were taught
not to give information out no matter what they were put thou.These replica's that travel to different places so we would not forget the great
sacrifices that they gave for us- for our freedom.

Love Ya,too!!! Well not many people know much about the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier".They have it guarded 24 hours a day,everyday
no matter what the weather .The guards are called Sentinals - they vounteer .They take 21 steps across a black mat past the resting tombs.
then a crisp turn 90 degrees to face East for 21 seconds-turns a sharp 90 degrees again to face North for 21 sec. A crisp "shoulder-arms"
movement places the rifle on the shoulder nearest to the visitors to signify that the sentinal stands between the tomb & any threat.After the
 moment, the sentinal paces 21 steps north & turns to repeat the process.The sentinal paces at a rate of 90 each minute.They do this even
when there are no visitors.They want to show the Unknown Soldiers that they deserve the very best so they give all to them.They perform their
duty with great precision & military bearing.they communicate thru heel clicks & a phone in case of emergency & any threats.They do their duty
in 24 hour shifts every 4 hrs they are relieved.They do their duty with American Pride.

Well described Cindy..Yes, the regimented routines is round-the-clock irrespective of the weather condition at the The Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington Nat'l Cemetery, VA. You can feel the pride witnessing the military routine accorded to the fallen braves. Visitors shouldn't give a pass to miss this & what more if you are an American...
