Photo of the day.
As Hurricane Sandy makes its way up the East Coast of the United States - and also makes itself known here in Toronto, where it started to rain about half an hour ago - here is a photo for today, with a caption taken from the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment Facebook page:
Spc. Brett Hyde, Tomb Sentinel, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), keeps guard over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during Hurricane Sandy at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Oct. 29, 2012. Hyde lives by the Sentinel's Creed which in part says "Through the years of diligence and praise and the discomfort of the elements, I will walk my tour in humble reverence to the best of my ability." (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. Jose A. Torres Jr.)Soldiers of The Old Guard have stood watch at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery since 1948, and they will continue to do so throughout the hurricane.
Prayers for all in harm's way. AMDG.
