Standing guard through Hurricane Sandy at the Tomb of the Unknowns

The Army's Old Guard continues their duty as sentinals at the Tomb of the Unknowns even as Hurricane Sandy looms closer to Arlington National Cemetery. The tomb has been guarded continuously since 1937. Service in the  3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) is considered to be an assignment of the highest honor for soldiers. Their dedication to the duty is so strong that when Hurricane Isabel approached, the soldiers were ordered to seek safety.  It was an order they disobeyed, and the Tomb was guarded throughout the storm.

CNN requested an opportunity to visit the tomb today to videotape the soldiers carrying out their duty. We were told that because of the weather, the cemetery was closed to visitors and that the members of the guard have switched to camouflage uniforms.  The Army does not want them photographed or videotaped wearing anything other than their traditional dress uniforms.

[Update 12:43pET – We are now told by the military that the photo below was taken last month.  All the photos above were provided by the Army and were taken today.]
