    A very remarkable photo (Tomb of the Unkown Soldier-Sandy)

    Whatever anybody thinks of our military and how it is used we must always honor our fallen. This picture is IMO remarkable. Tomb of the Unkown Soldier during Hurrican Sandy

    They also refused to leave their post for the last hurricane that came through.

    Here is a bit of their history. The Old Guard - Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    The Tomb Guards are, without a doubt, the most dedicated personel I have ever seen. I've been to Arlington several times, and to witness the changing of the Guard is something to behold. A very humbling experience to see these people, who will, if need be, give their lives, in order to protect the Fallen.

    Not bad for a bunch of Army doggies!


    In reality I have a great deal of admiration for those guys. There's nothing that would get them to abandon their post... and true loyalty is difficult to find in today's world.

    Sorry, you've all been fooled. That is not an image from Hurricane Sandy.

    Still awesome, however, that those that guard the Tomb never leave it.

    Here's actual images of the Old Guard soldiers at the Tomb during Sandy.

    I'm asking this not as a smarty-pants. Why do the fallen need protected? What is the point of giving ones life to protect the already dead? Yes i think it's cool how they stand gaurd, looks good, makes it seem like the Gov/army care about he fallen. And just for the record I am thankful for all the folks that have died so that i can type this and not worry about the "secret police" coming into my house tonight. Just askin, not trying to poop in anybodys ice cream
