I just read that during the entire time of Hurricane Irene's impact on Washington, DC....the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was constantly guarded. As a matter of fact, the Tomb has been guarded around the clock, with out let up since April of 1948.
The 3rd US Infantry Regiment "The Old Guard" has had this solemn and sacred duty since that time and has never left the Tomb unguarded. The pictures above/below were taken during one of the down-poars associated with the storm. I am in awe of their dedication and strong sense of honor. God Bless these Soldiers who are looking out for us...
