The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is truly sacred ground.
Many visitors to D.C. like to 'check it off'... as just another place seen among all the Monuments. Honestly, The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the Vietnam Memorial are two places which respect and silence are a must. I've walked The Wall countless times and have offered my own "Shhhhh" when I hear voices louder than needed... unless of course they are Vets. The Wall belongs to them...
But as far as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, "It is requested that everyone maintains a level of silence and respect".
