As of early yesterday, more than 60 million people were under blizzard, winter storm or freezing rain warnings. The storm’s effects stretched from Georgia to Massachusetts, according to Weather.com.
Despite the blizzard conditions, the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery remained in place. Members of the 3rd Infantry Regiment, also known as “The Old Guard” maintain a constant vigil no matter the weather conditions.
These beautiful images remind of the dedication and valor of our citizens in uniform, and why we must never stop fighting for what makes our nation great, strong and exceptional. God bless the Old Guard, and God bless the United States of America.
