Soldiers to Stand Guard at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Through Historic Snowstorm


A small group of soldiers will brave this weekend’s historic snowstorm to stand guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery.

“These guys will be out in the snow, no matter what,” said Major Russell Fox, a spokesman for the Army’s Old Guard, according to ABC News.

Tomb Sentinels from the Army’s 3rd Infantry Regiment’s Old Guard have guarded the memorial — regardless of the weather — for 24 hours a day, 365 days a year since April 6, 1948, ABC reported.

“A lot of the guys are looking forward to this [storm] and kind of excited about it,” Fox added.
