Their mis­sion is to ed­u­cate the gen­eral pub­lic about the Tomb of the United States of Amer­ica’s un­known war heroes, pre­serve the his­tory and tra­di­tions re­lat­ing to the Tomb, pro­vide as­sis­tance to the Tomb and the cur­rent Tomb Guards and their fam­i­lies.

The goal of the so­ci­ety is to make cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als that made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice of their life for our free­dom are not for­got­ten, and the gen­eral pub­lic un­der­stands this price of free­dom.
