The Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns

This is a little information on one of the most well recognized platoons in the Army, the Tomb Guards.  If you have never been to Arlington and seen this you need to. It is a great example of our dedication to the men and women who lose their lives in our armed services.  I also highly recommend you watch the film Taking Chance to see what we do when a known hero comes home to be buried.  It is an amazing movie but bring your tissue.
