    I had no idea the tomb of the unknown soldier was guarded 24/7/365 days a year.
    I always assumed it was just some ceremonial busy work that our president attended once a year.
    Nice to see real honor and patriotism actually being produced in our nation.

    Been there, done that but no reason to turn this into a troll thread.

    I am honestly impressed at what I've learned tonight. Not for learning it but for realizing not all of us are full of shit 24/7

    The Society of the Honor Guard is one of the most impressive units in the military.

    You are right to be impressed!

    Not only that but, as I recall, the same unit of the army has been the ones who guard it. I thought it was the 3rd Army but I was wrong...it is the 3rd Infanty Regiment.

    Generally, with disregard for the weather. I seem to remember some 15 second controversy about the guards still being on duty during a hurricane.

    Well I knew it was guarded 24/7 and its a testimony to those lost in war.
