    Despite the hurricane, guards for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier stay at their posts

    According to the First Army Division East, which posted the picture on its Facebook page, the three soldiers of the 3rd Infantry Regiment stood guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as the first heavy bands of rain from Hurricane Sandy moved across the Washington, D.C. area.
    Back in 2011, during Irene, the Old Guard stood watch over the tomb. As Mark reminded us at that time, "there is a shelter the soldiers could use, but they have consistently declined to do so."

    May the Good LORD bless the courageous and honorable soldiers of the Old Guard and keep them safe while they perform their sacred duties.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
    -General Omar Bradley, United States Army
