Summary: The 100th Anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier exhibit will be in North Platte for 2 days for Community Education

This exhibit has been developed to educate the public, schools and community. An exact replica of the Tomb of the Unknow Soldier(TOUS100) has been traveling during the 2021 year across the eastern board of the United States working with local DAR, museums, military bases, historical sites showcasing the Tomb. It is a great way for everyone to see the entire tomb 360 degrees and have 4 exhibitors educating it's history, importance and all symbols located on the tomb. Most people can not travel to Washington D.C. to see this historic site. We are providing the local library with 5 educational books and videos for the community to learn in depth at their own pace. We will be working with local and private schools during the school year 2021-22 providing additional educational information. our committee is requesting funding to provide social media coverage for the state of Nebraska administered by our local Visitor Center. This exhibit is currently in 6 national magazines. The exhibit will be located July 31-August1 at Buffalo Bill State Historical Park. Game and Parks of Nebraska is helping by supplying a large tent, room for food trucks during this event as well as support from the Boy Scouts. This event will have a wreath laying ceremony at the top of each hour for military organizations, DAR and local organizations. Our committee has reached out to over 100 veteran organizations for interest in the wreath laying. A press release for all local and state newspapers as well as posters and website has been developed by Visitor Center It will cost them $250.00 to pay for social media websites.
