Vermont Veterans’ Home Chosen to Honor Unknown Soldiers
On Sunday, February 23, the Vermont Veterans’ Home was honored to be chosen to place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. It seems only fitting, since this beloved memorial is made from pure white marble quarried in Vermont. The Vermont Marble Museum in Proctor tells the story of its creation, including a panoramic mural of Arlington National Cemetery and a glimpse into the modern-day Changing of the Guard Ceremony that takes place at the tomb. The museum is currently closed for the season, but you can visit them at vermont-marble.com to find out more, and plan to visit when it re-opens, under new management, in May.
