I can remember when I was walking the mat on July 5, 1976 when the Gueen of England came an laid a wreath at the unknown soldier. I was posted in the box for approximately four hours until the ceremony was concluded; the Queen of England walked over to me as I was standing in the box, smiled and remarked my men are much better than you. To this day I still see her and remember her remarks. I just though to my self and laughed, "There is no one better than us."
