TNGS Fourth Quarterly Membership Meeting  & 

The Second Casket From the Right by Mike Ellicott

Please join us for the last Membership Meeting for the year, open to members and non-members. We encourage everyone to attend this meeting in order to receive an overview of the Society’s Goals, upcoming programs and events.

The Second Casket from the Right:  Nearly 100 years ago, on November 11, 1921, America honored her 4.7 million WWI veterans by entombing an Unknown Warrior (A Soldier or Marine) in Arlington National Cemetery.  Hear the story of the Unknown’s selection from among the 1,257 unknowns buried in American Cemeteries in France, the Unknown’s journey from France across the Atlantic to the US Capitol and burial in Arlington Cemetery, the stories of the eight American Heroes hand-picked as his Body Bearers, and the continuing story of the Tomb and its Guards.

Access will be through GoToWebinar. Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and 1 hour prior to the event. Making the connection is quick and easy only requiring a computer and Internet connectivity from wherever you chose to watch the event. Your questions help drive the meetings, and we will be there to help each other.
