Each night when I take Coco out for her walk I always look up at the sky. The sky tonight was very clear and the stars were extremely bright. Sometimes you have to disconnect from life, even if it’s for a few minutes, to realize how much beauty there is in the small things people take for granted.
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument in dedication to the services of an unknown soldier, Marine, airman or sailor and to the common memories of all soldiers, Marines, airmen and sailors killed in any war. Throughout history, many soldiers have died in wars with their remains being unidentified. The tomb is guarded 24/7 365. Even through hurricanes as a sign of respect.
These soldiers stand guard, day and night, through blistering heat and freezing cold. They stand in driving rain without flinching. It is one of the highest honors to guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and there are no excuses, no rainy days. One year, a really bad hurricane swept through the coast and the soldiers were given permission to leave their post. They declined, choosing to stay and guard the tomb.
These men inspire me and have my utmost respect. Thank you.
If you get the chance, you should go and see the Tomb and the guard changing ceremony. Its life changing
I got to see it when I was 17. It’s an absolutely incredible experience.
