Should unknown fallen American soldiers be properly honored? Yes. Should Americans have a symbolic element to remember the unknown fallen soldiers? Yes, and that is why the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was built. Throughout history of our great and powerful country, the United States, we have fought many wars and have recruited many military personnel. For example, during World War l alone 4,734,991 service members were on active duty. Tragically however, there were also a total of 53,402 battle deaths that occurred. Of these casualties whenever possible the remains were identified and sent home back to their families for a funeral. Sadly this was not always possible because some fallen soldiers were unidentified and not given a proper burial.
