Haunting photo of soldier honoring unknown soldier stirs hearts ahead of Memorial Day



As vicious storms bore down on Washington ahead of Memorial Day, the intrepid members of the Third U.S. Infantry Regiment, known as “The Old Guard,” could be seen doing what they do every year – placing small American flags at each headstone in Arlington National Cemetery.

The sight of a soldier kneeling, seemingly impervious to the driving rain and the ominous gray sky, captivated special attention this year as a soldier knelt reverently and gently placed the flag.

“With only a few watching from cover, a Tomb Sentinel approached the Unknowns with U.S. flags in hand,” the Old Guard said in a Facebook post. “As thunder shook the ground and rains washed down without abandon, the Tomb Sentinel pierced through the elements with breathtaking precision.”
