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. Just like the Sentinel’s Creed 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”, Hyde lives by this creed.

God Bless them every day.

Thanks to Moshe for reminding me about this. Apparently, a photo from September of this year is being used as today's image. As you can tell above, those are today's images.

On Twitter, @The_Old_Guard is reminding the media and others of the correct images.
