    Guards at Tomb of the Unknowns to remain on-site during hurricane | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

    WASHINGTON—Hurricane Sandy is expected to slam the East Coast and the federal government is shut down—but the U.S. servicemen who guard the outdoor Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery will remain on duty.

    "They will not abandon their post," an employee who answered the Arlington Cemetery's phone confirmed to Yahoo News. He identified himself as "George," but was not authorized to speak on the record to the media.

    I'm quite simply in awe of these men. I have no words to describe their courage.

    If only the rest of us could behave so honorably.

    Having stood watch in all sorts of shitty weather

    I can tell you right now, anyone exposed to hurricane weather will be pulled in and Navy subs will be all but completely closed up.

    One man, in the sail, in foal weather gear.

    Not out in the open in his dress blues.
