Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Presentation to Open Historical Society’s Lunch and Learn

Tomb of Unknow Soldier

Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

September 10, 2014 at The Chelsea

Twenty-four hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year, in any weather, the Tomb Guard sentinels watch over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in Arlington, Virginia. All volunteers, they are considered to be the best of the elite 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), headquartered at Fort Myer, Va. Their mission: they are “responsible for maintaining the highest standards and traditions of the United States Army and this Nation while keeping a constant vigil at this National Shrine, and; whose special duty is to prevent any desecration or disrespect directed toward the Tomb.” New Bern’s Mike Power served in this elite regiment and on Wednesday September 10, 2014 he’ll share some of his experiences with you.
