Matt L. Kreeb, a former guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery spoke at Shelbyville Manor on Wednesday afternoon. Regional Radio News spoke with Kreeb before his presentation, where he said what he learned while a guard at the Tomb of the Uknown Soldier continues to guide his life to this day.
Kreeb said people forget that each headstone at Arlington represents a person. He said this also applies to senior living facilities like Shelbyville Manor, because often times the elderly feel forgotten or left behind in society.
Kreeb urged everyone to try to get to know the elderly, because they have lots of stories to tell.
