Sunday Styles: Cenotaph

Cenotaph is a monument erected in honor of a dead person whose remains lie elsewhere.

The word orginated from the French word cĂ©notaphe,  from the Latin cenotaphium, and from the Greek word kenotaphion. Broken down the word comes from kenos "empty" + taphos "tomb."

He is actually buried in Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial located in Romagne, France.

He is buried at sea.
