Tomb ReflectionsSecond Relief was the best and most respected relief. We had several challenges on site during the May riots of 1972 in Washington DC. To this day when its mentioned that I was a proud member of the Tomb Guard you receive many questions and a high level of respect. I'm extremely proud to have been a member of what is still today an extremely elite group of the Army's Best.
