My experience of guarding the Tomb was a unique adventure which continues to affect me years later. The magnitude of responsibility to appropriately honor the Unknowns was humbling; while the accomplishment of proficiency was empowering. The standards I learned while guarding endure as a gauge in every facet of my life. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to memorialize the Unknowns and all that they represent.
