Tomb Thoughts - Poem of the Month from Dick Raymond



* The Tomb Guards, all carefully-selected volunteers, form part of E Company, 3d U.S. Infantry "The Old Guard".Only those soldiers who pass a number of rigorous tests, and have been voted in by their colleagues, are allowed to wear the honored badge of Tomb Guard. And for any misconduct during their service, a former sentry may be stripped of his badge. They walk their post every hour of every day, throughout the year, regardless of weather. During a recent hurricane, the scheduled sentries were offered the chance to remain under shelter, till the weather cleared. All refused, and served the full tour.
