Leave politics out of it!! I am a democrat, work for the Dept of Army and my husband is an active duty, very honorable soldier, who has fought in Iraq and earned the Army Air Medal of Valor among many others for his service ! Don't go there...we all see things differently and nasty name calling is not ok! Just shows how low you will go to make everyone else look bad. PS I agree it is not the "cushiest job" by any means, it is one of the toughest and it is very honorable!!

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington Cemetery will remain guarded through Hurricane Sandy. Photos of a soldier diligently performing his duties were posted on the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) Facebook page.

Thank you to all of our followers for the kind words this morning. Old Guard Soldiers are currently conducting modified funerals in Arlington National Cemetery, filling sand bags for contingencies, guarding the Tomb, and important support tasks such as continuing to operate the dining facility and aid station. We will post photos as quickly as we can.
