  1. Just a clarification: the Honor Guards at the Unknown Sailor Monument were NOT naval cadets. They were local schoolchildren, from 8th to 10th grades, assigned from various schools for a week at a time. My classmates were there as well.

    1. Hello, Eric,

      Thanks a lot for your comment. The information in the post has been corrected.

      Best wishes.
