Arlington National Cemetery

The BOSTON has an important tie to Arlington National Cemetery, one of the most consecrated and revered places in our nation's capitol. It was a singular honor for us to be invited to plant a tree there, within sight of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. After a considerable effort we were granted permission to place a marker that shows the provenance of our tree and puts the name of our ship in the public eye.
