Despite Hurricane Irene Tomb Sentinel Guards Tomb of Unknowns

Since 1937, a Tomb Sentinel from the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment has guarded the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier 24/7 despite hurricanes and blizzards. The tombs contains remains of unknown soldiers from WWI, WWII, and the Korean War. There have been three female sentinels.

We commend the Tomb Sentinels for their commitment. Their motto is :”Soldiers never die until they are forgotten. Tomb Guards never forget.” We hold our servicemen and women in our hearts. We will  never forget.
