Hurricane Irene is making its way up the East Coast as I write. In the midst of the heavy winds and the driving rain, there is a special breed of soldier who is braving the bad weather to continue to honor the brave soldiers that gave their all. This solider is an Tomb Sentinel with the 3rd Infantry Regiment – the Old Guard. They have guarded the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier every minute of every day since April 6, 1948.
The pictures below were taken today at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and are posted on the 3rd Infantry Regiment’s Facebook page.
