(Fox News) – The United States Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
was dedicated at Arlington National Cemetery — following a
reverential selection process that spanned the Atlantic Ocean
— on this day in history, Nov. 11, 1921.

The remains of the American hero buried beneath the tomb
was chosen from thousands of unidentified
doughboys killed
in World War I
and buried in France.

"Here rests in honored glory an American Soldier, Known but
to God," reads the inscription on the marble tomb.
