Honor the Fallen: Unknown Soldier Guard Places Flag Through Severe Rainstorm

From Department of Defense Twitter:

“On Wednesday, torrential rain and drastic wind gusts overcame America’s most hallowed grounds. Visitors ran for cover. News media piled into vehicles together. The streets flooded. Trees as old as the cemetery itself broke at the trunk and came crashing down.

But America’s Regiment endured. They found low ground and held fast through the wind and the rain. Some had to be to ordered to stand down from planting flags, still determined to continue to #HonorTheFallen.

One of the most extraordinary displays of discipline and dedication to duty ever to be witnessed at @ArlingtonNatl was taking place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. With only a few watching from cover, a Tomb Sentinel approached the Unknowns with U.S. flags in hand.

As thunder shook the ground & rains washed down, the Tomb Sentinel pierced through the elements w/breath-taking precision. He knelt & placed the flags in honor of the Unknowns. Humans have their limits, but @USArmyOldGuard has yet to meet theirs. #KnowYourMil”

Powerful, very powerful. The Memorial Day parade just passed by here, only lasted about 10 minutes. It’s a small town but at least they’re doing something. Scouts, boy and girl, separate, firemen. No politicians, they’re busy destroying the country, no holidays for them. Some bagpipers at the end, I thought they were playing Amazing Grace but it was the Shaker hymn, Simple Gifts. Which seemed appropriate and inevitable. It’s a stunningly beautiful day. Prayers and blessings
