This marker was erected in 2013 as an Eagle Project by a local Boy Scout to direct people on the bike path to visit Private Redin's grave in the adjacent cemetery which is not visible from the path. Private John Redin was one of the few Revolutionary War veterans who are known to be buried in Arlington County.
