My Dad walked the mat in the early 40's. He placed a wreath w/ Charles DeGaulle and saw Eleanor Roosevelt get her hat caught in a tree.
He passed away a year and a half ago. I miss him every day.
Thanks for sharing this.

God bless your dad and many thanks for his faithful service.
I have been to the Tomb of the Unknowns a few times. The men that walk the mat are just glorious, that’s just one of the words I could use. I was just in awe of how faithful and dedicated these men are. I cried, I smiled and I was deeply moved.
It is just a shame that there are those that are to illiterate to be in polite society. I’m glad they got a verbal slapdown.
