Honoring The Fallen

As hurricane Irene bore down on Washington D.C., most people hurried to find shelter out of the storm.  This would not be the case for at least one group of dedicated soldiers.  Irene would not keep them from their duty.  In fact since 1937, the Tomb of the Unknowns has been guarded without pause 24/7.  That means nothing would stop these men from doing this duty of honor.

Not only does this show great personal courage on the part of the soldiers venturing out into harms way, but this is a great symbol of America’s resolve to stand up to adversity.  Well done Marine…Well done!
