    Arlington Cemetery Honor Guard

    I just read where the Honor Guard at the Tombs of the Unknowns have elected not to abandon their post during hurricane Sandy. They are truly patriots. And fine examples of our Military. They certainly deserve the respect of all of us.

    My father and husband are both vets. I just want to thank you for fighting for all of us. It means a lot when someone will defend for so many they don't even know. So to all those who have served, are serving, or lost their life in the line of duty. Thank you.
