At The Tomb of the Unknowns …

Tomb of the unknowns“My dedication to this sacred duty is total and wholehearted. 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.” – The Sentinels Creed


The Tomb of the Unknowns is protected by the Sentinels of the Third United States Infantry Regiment, also know as “Old Guard” – and oddly enough, even though this is the only picture I have of a “stranger” in my photo library, I would invite this young man to dinner in my house any day … Today’s post inspired by The Daily Prompt: Edge of the Frame – “We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.”
