Each of the crypts will be capped with a flat slab of granite. The one containing the Unknown of World War II will be inscribed with the numerals "1941-1945" and the cap covering the crypt of the Korean War Unknown will bear on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier which reads: "Here Rests in Honored Glory an American Soldier Known But to God."
