I was flipping through the cable channels and happen to stop on CNN! they are showing a video that every American needs to see. They have a video of a Honor Guard at a funeral at Arlington National Cemetery for a war veteran and a major storm blows in and rain hail, high winds of a storm blowing in and these fine soldiers stand at guard by the coffin not moving a inch until the storm blows through and the people attending the funeral can return to see our fine soldier off. What a honor it is to me to see such respect.

Duce,
The honor gurad at Arlington is all about respect and tradition. The troops of the unit must not only serve in the unit, they must believe in the traditions and the respect and live them every day. It is not just their job, it is their way of life. It is something to watch them, for sure. Salute
Best,
Ed

Yes thanks for the clip Duce. My Brother In Law is over there now. I hope he will be ok. This kind of thing makes me proud as hell to be a former sailor.
