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 cénotaphe,  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.
