Tomb Reflections

There are too many memorable moments to record on this page, but I will mention a ritual I developed while guarding the Tomb in the middle of the night. I would stand near the Unknowns while facing our nation’s capitol and share my most intimate thoughts and prayers with the Unknowns; a very humbling, spiritual and motivating experience.
