    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.

    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.

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