This event is free to the public.

The Unknown Soldier Story
Cave Creek Museum will host “The Unknown Soldier Story” on May 21 from 2-4 p.m. May 21 is the perfect time to learn more about the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and its connection to our troops and veterans – especially with Memorial Day around the corner on May 30.
