Avatar for Edmond  Gittens, Jr.

I will always credit my duty assignment as Sergeant Of the Guard, Tomb of the Unknowns and also the Color Guard Sergeant, Continental Color Guard with contributing immensely to the manner in which I’ve conducted myself as a soldier and as a civilian. Being a member of The Old Guard, 3d Inf. Regiment made me a better person, father and mentor to others. I was able to be in the presence of the Queen of England, President Bush, VP Dan Quayle and numerous other dignataries and heads of states. In my heart I’ll always be a Tomb Guard. Line 6 is always in effect!!!
