    The 3rd United States Infantry Regiment is a regiment of the United States Army. It currently has three active battalions, and is readily identified by its nickname, The Old Guard, as well as Escort to the President. The regimental motto is Noli Me Tangere (from Latin: - Touch me Not). The regiment is a major unit of the Military District of Washington (MDW).The regiment is the oldest active unit of infantry in the Army, having been first organized as the First American Regiment in 1784.

    The Old Guard is responsible for guarding the Tomb Of The Unknown. That is one of the big tourist stops in D.C.

    We also provide soldiers to give tours at the Pentagon.

    Plus this time of year there is Twilight Tattoo as well at Ft. McNair.

    Where else are you going where TOG is at?

    My husband wants to see the Museum and Arlington he also wants to see Twilight Tattoo but wants to know if we can since we are not military. We would like to see the Memorial at the Pentagon after watching the coverage on Fox news about it

    There is a lot of history with them. Going all the way back to the 1848 War with Mexico. As the Army's Honor Guard element in D.C. we are at pretty much every official function and ceremony.

    I believe the museum on Ft. Myer should be re-opened by now as well. I was there from 2006-10. Had some long days...but it's a once in a lifetime experience.
