There are those of us who have trouble keeping a straight face sometimes; the smart ones know what places/situations to observe from afar.

That is what the Sentry is there for. To guard The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier!


All who have served there, are currently on duty and who will accept that post in the future; have my complete, undying and most reverent respect!

Why would you go see anything and talk on the phone? I don't get it.

In some situations I will start talking to people who are on the cell phone and mock what they are talking about. And they think I am the rude one!

Some things are worth getting arrested for.
That's just dirty. Something we should all remember though, is that there are a lot of Americans who travel to foreign countries and act like total jackasses too.

Something simply inherently WRONG with a Jap laughing at the USS Arizona Memorial.

Kinda like me laughing at the Nagasaki or Hiroshima blast memorials. (If there is such a thing)

Or a Kraut laughing at the cemetery at Normandy. (Where my Uncle (Gramps brother) is buried)

Solemn places, even could be considered holy places...NO Place for laughter or boisterousness. All should act equally reverent at such places no matter generation or nationality.

Does the guard at the tomb carry live ammo?

There have been some Americans who got into some trouble for starting stuff at the Nagasaki memorial. Can't give dates or links, but I very vividly remember seeing it on the news about 5 years ago. All I could do was hang my head in shame.
