As salutes are rendered by veterans of the Battle of the Bulge, which began 69 years ago, Dec. 16, 1944, in the Ardennes Forrest of Belgium, Luxembourg and The Netherlands, a member of the Tomb of the Unknown guards rests a wreath honoring the more than 19,000 American Soldiers killed there. The battle would effectively end the ability of Germany to pursue the Second World War.
