The 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment, The Old Guard, is the U.S. Army’s ceremonial unit, providing support to activities in the Washington, D.C. area and as escort to the President. The Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unkowns are an elite, selected from the ranks of The Old Guard to perform this sacred duty.
Our Memorial Day post will go up on Monday morning, but take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices made by so many.
They may be ceremonial, but the sentinels really do guard the Tomb. Do. Not. Mess. With. Them.
