Repairs at Arlington National Cemetery
I found this news article on the Arlington National Cemetery website to be very interesting. Sure it doesn't go into a huge amount of detail but it shows the care that is put into this cemetery and particularly the Tomb of the Unknowns. the delicate repair work being done is incredible. Looks like every 20-30 years these types of repairs will need to be made. Hopefully the problem won't become worse over time. Here is the official web page for the Tomb of the Unknowns on the Arlington site.
If you haven't had the chance to go to Arlington it really is one of those places every American should have the chance to see. I was lucky enough to be able to visit a couple of years ago while on my honeymoon and I would love to go back. It can easily turn into a full day event if you aren't careful. In the mean time the book linked below is a wonderful photo book for anyone interested in the cemetery. There are several other nice books out there as well.
