I was a member of The Old Guard from June 1956 to January 1959 and I had the privilege to be part of the entombment of the two unknown soldiers (World War II and Korean Conflict) in 1958. I was posted on the left walkway behind the tomb short distance from the bottom of the steps was in A Company at Fort McNair.
I was friends with the bus driver who drove us to Arlington that day. I gave him my brownie camera to take some pictures for me. There is only a few, i will email them to you.
I am now a member of The Old Guard Association .I enjoyed seeing our plaque in the video. Thank you for the great website. Please thank Sue and Dennis for putting together a great video.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
