Did You Know? - It's been a tradition for years that Topper's Celebrates and Honors our fallen on dance closest to Memorial Day. We get out our formals and often have an honor guard or sing the songs of our armed forces!
"We've got to stop meeting like this!"
"We will drink to that"
"P-s-s-s-s-s-t ... You know, Paul will drink to anything!"
Did You Know? -
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Arlington, Virginia
While Arlington National Cemetery contains many military memorials, the most famous is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which honors those who died without recognition. Located on the Memorial Amphitheater Plaza, a marble sarcophagus marks the grave of an unidentified soldier from World War I, while marble markers designate the graves of soldiers from WWII and Korea. The unknown soldier interned after the Vietnam war was identified in 1998, and the crypt remains empty.

Did You Know? - Normandy American Cemetery, Colleville-sur-Mer, France - The cemetery serves as the final resting place for many of the American soldiers who were killed in the D-Day landings in June 1944. The memorial includes a colonnade, featuring maps and information about the operations in the area, that opens to the statue The Spirit of American Youth Rising from the Waves and a serene reflecting pool. The semicircular "Wall of the Missing" pays tribute to soldiers who could not be identified.
The club gets down to serious business now!
Gliding across the floor with the greatest of ease!
Going pretty fast here guys...

Did You Know? - World War II Valor in the Pacific Monument, Honolulu - The World War II Valor in the Pacific monument, which is spread over several sites, commemorates the American lives lost in the Pacific front in WWII, including those killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
While the monument also has locations in California and Alaska, the majority of the sites are in Pearl Harbor, including the USS Arizona Memorial. Designed by architect Alfred Preis and accessible via boat, the memorial is positioned directly above the wreckage of the sunken battleship.
