Eternal Flame Restored at JFK Gravesite

The eternal flame located at former President John F. Kennedy’s memorial has been restored after undergoing repairs.

ABC News reports that the flame[1] was moved back into its permanent eternal flame spot on Tuesday after spending six months in a temporary location until the old one was restored. The original icon commemorating our 35th president was moved in April because it needed new gas and air lines after 40 years of use. Workers also added a new burner assembly line and new drainage lines below the flame to restore it.

The project was supposed to be done by May but it took longer than it expected and it is finally back to its original spot.
