re: Soldiers still guarding Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during SandyPosted by Geaux13 on 10/29/12 at 12:40 pm to sicboy
My bro-in-law used to be a tomb guard. He had the second most walks of any guard as of a few years ago. This is the best way he described the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier to me.
There is one un-identified soldier from each war burried there. When he worked there he had a family come to him in tears thanking him for his service after they went in front of the tomb. The lady said she had lost her son in the war, and his body was never identified. As she was praying in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier she thought that was her son in there, and finally got to tell him good-bye!
