Arlington National Cemetery is implementing 100% ID checks at all entrances for guests 16 and over. Visitors 16 and 17 years old may present a school issued identification for entry. Anyone not having ID will be denied entry. If any guest rides over on the Lincoln shuttle and are denied entry to the cemetery, they will not be able to re-board the shuttle.
We ask for your patience as this will create longer than usual delays and we apologize for any inconvenience.
He became one of the most highly decorated soldiers from World War II after being turned down by the Marine Corp for being too short and then turned down by the paratroopers. He received 28 medals, three from France and one from Belgium, all before he turned 21. His military record and good looks landed him in Hollywood. He acted in over 40 films including “To Hell and Back”, which was autobiographical. He died in a plane crash at the age of 46.
