This monument is dedicated to those who died in battle in service to our country whose remains were never identified. It is a place of honor and remembrance.

This part of the tour is extremely important and should not be missed.The changing of the guard is quite compelling and shows the sacrifices the soldiers make for their service to our great country.

Long walk from main gate but you can get transport. It's a moving experience and sad but a valid reminded of what happens in war.

Every place is a great seat. Feel free to take video or take pictures. It is the most incredible part of the cemetery. For sure the changing of the guard honors every soldier fallen in war.
Make sure you take the riding tour that way you'll get there right on time. You won't miss it and you want arrive mid way through.

Changing of the guard deserves 5 stars, but, arriving only 5-10 mins before the change, we could NOT see at all. Waited around another hour to watch again, and in the interim happened to be there when a foreign official laid a wreath, and there was a military ceremony with band, flag corps, and marching servicemen. Perhaps future guests can ask at visitor center if special event is happening during visit time and be early so you can have view of it.
