This isn't exactly "See Service News," but it will likely be of interest to many Navy League members. It will take a little time to load.

"The Unknowns" is a documentary created by Army Veterans Ethan Morse and Neal Schrodetzki. Both were stationed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, and bring a unique perspective to the training process that soldiers must endure to be stationed there. It's scheduled for release on Memorial Day, 2016.
