74th I.O.O.F. Pilgrimage to the Tomb of the Unknown

Brothers that can attend;  May 4-6, 2007 will be the 74th time that the Independent Order of Oddfellows have been allowed the prestegious honor of laying wreaths from every jurisdiction of our order at the tomb of the Unknown while being gaurded by our Patriarch Militants.

The Tomb of the Unknown is in Arlington, Virginia.  The headquarters for the event is the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia.  All attendees must register with the I.O.O.F. Pilgrimage Committee.  All registration info can be found in your January-February I.O.O.F. Newsletter.

This honor was bestowed upon our order by President Teddy Roosevelt in 1933, he was an Oddfellow.  Since that time our order has amassed at the Tomb each year to honor heros that have been populating that piece of earth since 1864.  There are few things in this world that can take your breath away, make your body quiver and make your eyes whell up with tear...this is one of them.

Oddfellows world wide will be at this event.  We strongly urge a contingent from each lodge to participate in supporting your order at this event.  Honoring our fallen soldiers is a duty of all Americans.  Please do your part for your Order and your Country.
