‘nuff said

With only a few watching from cover, a Tomb Sentinel approached the Unknowns with U.S. flags in hand. As thunder shook the ground and rains washed down without abandon, the Tomb Sentinel pierced through the elements with breath-taking precision.

He knelt and placed the flags in honor of the Unknowns. For the select few who saw this moment, it was jaw-dropping. Humans have their limits, but The Old Guard has yet to meet theirs.

I was always taught you were supposed to keep the flag protected from the elements unless it was lit, or is that not correct? Either way, a very nice gesture.

I believe you’re correct, Wilbur.  Under normal circumstances, our flag should be lit at night.  However, the Tomb of the Unknown, and Memorial Day itself, are not normal circumstances.

Great Post BrewBama!
