He was an American. Killed far from home in France. And because he was unidentified, his coffin was selected from a group of like war dead, and shipped with full pomp and panoply back to the United States, where, on 11 NOV 1921, he was laid to rest on two inches of French soil, in a Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia, by the President of the United States, and in the presence of dignitaries, from both the United States and other countries.

Arlington Cemetery had long standing ties in american history. It had been a plantation owned by George Washington's wife's family. Through marriage, it had become the property of Robert e. Lee. As the result of the death of his son, fighting for the Union in the Shenandoah Valley, it had been selected by the Quartermaster General of the Union Army, Alabaman Montgomery Meigs, as a new Federal War cemetery. And now it became the resting place of a series of Unknowns, each awarded the Medal of Honor, from America's wars in World War II and Korea. A Viet Nam unknown was identified by DNA and removed and re-interred near his family. There are no more unknowns, because of the military's DNA base.

Jeannette Rankin, Progressive Republican, Suffragette and Pacifist is the first woman elected to the House of Representatives. She is defeated for re-election in 1918, principally because of her vote against the declaration of War on the Central Powers, which led to America's entry into World war I.

Rankin is again re-elected to the House in 1940. When FDR seeks a Declaration of War against the Empire of Japan after the Japanese attack on ;pearl Harbor, Rankin again votes 'No', the only member of Congress to do so. She is turned out of Congress in 1942, and her ploitical career deservedly ends.

These days she would be a Dem hero.
