#1 Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Guarded Despite Hurricane08-29-2011, 04:59 PMThe dedication and respect shown in this story is the reason why our military is the best in the world. Despite the crazy weather yesterday in Arlington, Va., as a result of Hurricane Irene, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier was not forgotten.
This description, and the accompanying photos, were posted on Facebook yesterday by the 3rd U.S. INF Regiment the Old Guard:
"A lone Tomb Sentinel, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), walks his tour in humble reverence during Hurricane Irene in Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Aug 27. Members of The Old Guard have guarded the Tomb every second, of every day regardless of weather or holidays since April 6, 1948."

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
