This first video is a pretty intensive look at the daily life, attention to detail, respect, and honor of the "Old Guard" at Arlington National Cemetery. This is a glimpse into their daily regiment and it's very satisfying to me that our country still grows men of this caliber. These guys give me hope for the future of this country. This video is from 2011.
Below is the description underneath this video on YouTube:
A unique look behind the scenes of the Old Guard as they protect the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, bury heroes at Arlington National Cemetery and do other unique duties. This is one of the most professional units in the military. Watch as they go through all the preparation for a day of work and honor. Very inspiring and makes you proud they are one of our units.
