    Default Got this tribute to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

    Got this off the Sig Forum. Nice tribute to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Memorial in Washington and the sentrys. I found it quite moving. Enjoy.

    A very touching slide show.
    Thank you for sharing.
    The biggest problem with making Obama jokes is that liberals don't think they are funny and everyone else doesn't think they're jokes.

    Very nice!

    I think that the Changing of the Guard ceremony is incredible! These Soldiers of the Old Guard have some of the finest traditions anywhere. They honor the fallen as they're laid to rest in Arlington, they honor our statesmen as they lie in state in the Capitol, and their never-ending service to the Tomb of the Unknowns is legendary.
    If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen. ---Samuel Adams

    I wept when I went to DC on the 4th a few years back. The most touching moment of our trip.
