On Thursday, as part of the inaugural events, President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence visited the Arlington National Cemetery and laid a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument dedicated to those who lost their lives defending our country but have not been able to have had their bodies identified. It is also known as the “Tomb of the Unknowns.”

The elected pair placed the wreath in front of the tomb before putting their hands over their hearts and stood as solemn music played.
