Washington D.C. SHUT DOWN by Blizzard… But These Proud Soldiers Are STAYING PUT

by Jason DeWitt

Washington, D.C. is shutting down as this historic winter storm continues to cover the nation’s capital in snow.

But as the winds pick up speed and the snow piles up, the men who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier never stop keeping watch.

The photos are in from the Tomb today, and they are going viral!

The Sentinel’s Creed, which these brave men memorize, is:

“My dedication to this sacred duty
is total and whole-hearted.
In the responsibility bestowed on me
never will I falter.
And with dignity and perseverance
my standard will remain perfection.
Through the years of diligence and praise
and the discomfort of the elements,
I will walk my tour in humble reverence
to the best of my ability.
It is he who commands the respect I protect,
his bravery that made us so proud.
Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day,
alone in the thoughtful peace of night,
this soldier will in honored glory rest
under my eternal vigilance.”

These 99 words describe the meaning of their duty. They will often use the words “Line-6” by Tomb Guards while they converse within their chain of command.

May God Bless them for their service to America and our fallen soldiers.

Please share this everywhere on Facebook. And May God Bless America!

    I’ve been there and it is the most wonderful thing that you will ever see. This is something that every proud American should put on their “must do” list.

  • Troy Parramore

    This article has nothing to do about OUR PRESIDENT!! And yet here you effing people are… Tell you what, why don’t you people with a hard-on for the President go and thank these solders yourself. But you want will you? Enlist or shut your trap.

    These men dedicate their lives to this. They were given the opportunity to stop during Hurricane Sandy and refused. They certainly will not take time off in a blizzard. I have the utmost respect for these men guarding the tomb. Thank you to all of them for their service, and to all men and women who are serving and all veterans who have served, and all their families, for all your sacrifices. God bless you all.
