The

Unknown Soldier

Of World War I

*

Rumania

 

 

Parcul Carol (Carol I Park) is one of many beautiful parks that adorn Bucharest.  Laid out only a decade before World War I according to the plans of French architect E. Redont, it commemorates the 40 years reign of King Carol I.

In 1963 a massive mausoleum was built on the site to the memory of "The heroes of the battle for freedom of the country."  Forty years earlier, it became the site of the memorial to the Unknown Rumanian (also spelled Romanian) Soldier.

The memorial, like that in France and Italy, is highlighted by an eternal flame.  An honor guard stands watch over the site.  The Medal of Honor bestowed on the Unknown Rumanian Soldier in 1923 is displayed at the National Military Museum in Bucharest.


The President of the United States
in the name of The Congress

Medal of Honor to

The Unknown Soldier of Rumania
World War I

By virtue of the authority vested by law in the President of the United States, The Congressional Medal of Honor, emblem of the highest military ideals and virtues, is bestowed in the name of the Congress of the United Sates upon the unknown, unidentified Rumanian soldier in a desire to add all that is possible to the imperishable glory won by the soldiers of Rumania who fought as comrades of the American soldiers during the World War, and to commemorate with them the deeds of the nations associated with the United States of America, by paying tribute to their unknown dead.
