Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
When an appeal for memories of wartime and what they thought of their country in the 21st century appeared in the local newspapers, many put pen to paper or dusted off their old typewriters to send a response. It is a timeless record of written testimony from men and women from Britain, Australia and New Zealand who served their country with bravery and determination in the War.

Unknown Warriors of WWII
He was, therefore, uniquely qualified when charged with finding, exhuming, and bringing to St Pol near Arras the bodies from whom the Unknown Warrior was chosen and transferred to Dover on HMS Verdun. On 11 November , the coffin was drawn on a gun carriage through the crowded streets of London, with a guard of honour made up of winners of the Victoria Cross.
As the cavalcade moved along Whitehall, two great union flags fell away at the press of a button by King George, unveiling the Cenotaph. In Westminster Abbey sat women who had lost their husbands and all their sons in the war, watching as the coffin was buried under sandbags of soil brought from the battlefields.
Myths and conspiracy theories have arisen about the Unknown Warrior.
Some claimed the government knew exactly who the warrior was. Kendall contradicts this, and the romantic stories of the selection being made by a blindfolded officer in a darkened chapel. All night they rested on trestles, with nothing to distinguish one from the other.
The door of the hut was locked, and sentries were posted outside. In the morning a general entered the hut. Kendall stayed in France and went back to work. Out of the despair, grew a resolve within the Japanese American community.
A desire to prove their loyalty to the United States. From behind the barbed wire, young men volunteered for military service by the thousands. The US Army put them in their own segregated unit, combining them with young men from Hawaii, who also had something to prove. By the end of the war, they became the most decorated unit in US military history. But, more importantly, they helped change the world. History books, shamefully, omit their incredible contributions.
