The eternal flame that burns at President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s gravesite has been restored, according to a UPI report on Tuesday. The eternal flame has been restored to its designated place after it had temporarily been moved for some-six months as crews made repairs to the site. On Tuesday, workers moved the flame back to its permanent burner, using a torch to move it from its temporary burner where it has been visible for tourists to see since April of this year.
The permanent burner, where the eternal flame has been returned, protrudes from a stone in the earth right next to President John F. Kennedy’s tomb at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia. The repair has given the site new gas lines and reportedly a more efficient burner.
The repair is completed less than a month before the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Besides the former president, his deceased brothers Robert and Ted are at Arlington National Cemetery, also.
