The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument in dedication to the services of an unknown soldier, Marine, airman or sailor and to the common memories of all soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors killed in any war. Throughout history, many soldiers have died in wars with their remains being unidentified. The tomb is guarded 24/7 365. Even through hurricanes as a sign of respect.
These soldiers stand guard, day and night, through blistering heat and freezing cold. They stand in driving rain without flinching. It is one of the highest honors to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and there are no excuses, no rainy days. One year, a really bad hurricane swept through the coast and the soldiers were given permission to leave their post. They declined, choosing to stay and guard the tomb.
These men inspire me and have my utmost respect. Thank you.
Holy shit. I’m not big on military/ unproductive spending or superstition, etc… Except when it’s totally badass like this. This is cool AND an incredible sign of respect for the soldiers who we won’t know and may never know the names of. Awesome, thanks for preserving my freedom, guys.
I’m friends with a Republican and I’m black and one of his best friends is gay so I guess that shows that not all of them are racist and homophobic.
It’s not a “not all of them” thing. It’s a totally untrue stereotype.
