Changing of the Guards at the Tomb of the Unknowns on a snowy day


A little snow isn’t going to stop them! The 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment’s Old Guard will continue guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier despite historic blizzard conditions on the East Coast.

The Old Guard has watched over the tomb at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since 1948, according to The New York Times. The cemetery will be closed to visitors as Winter Storm Jonas pummels the area.

      So sad isn’t it? It reminds me of visiting the Vietnam War Memorial late at night with few around.
