Chickasaw vets lay wreath at Tomb of Unknowns

 


WASHINGTON - Hundreds of visitors stood in still silence at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery on a cool, overcast day as three Chickasaw veterans stepped out to lay a wreath at the tomb. Marked by the words “Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God,” the tomb is a sacred place to honor all those who have died in service to the United States.

Jerry Tyson, of San Antonio; Joe Orr, of Frederick, Okla .; and Johnny Swinney, of Ranger, Texas agreed it was “a great honor” to be chosen to pay their respects to all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for their country.
