Located in Section DD of the Biloxi National Military Cemetery.

These photos were taken on Saturday, May 25, 2013 in Sec DD of the Biloxi National Military Cemetery. These four unknown US soldiers from the Mexican War were discovered when the tide washed away the soil over their coffins on the shore of Greenwood Island, Mississippi.

The DMWV was present for the interment in the US National Cemetery at Biloxi, MS. During the ceremony there were extremely heavy rains, but the solemn ceremony continued uninterrupted. The graves are in a pattern of three followed by a pathway, then a fourth grave. The graves are in section "DD" on the edge of the national cemetery near the main road.
