One more Memorial Day post, if you’ll permit me. Ian over at Expose the Left has video of Fox’s Power Player of the week from yesterday’s show. It is Army Staff Seargent Alfred Lanier, who is in charge of the Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington Cemetery. It’s a powerful piece, well worth the couple of minutes it takes to watch.
Watching the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns has always been my very favorite “tourist stop” in DC. Since we’re moving back to DC this summer, I look forward to taking my daughter to Arlington on many occasions to help her understand just what our freedom has cost.
If you’ve never seen the ceremony (which takes place every half hour during the summer), make it your top priority on your next trip to DC. Any friend or family member who visits us after we move there should expect a trip to Arlington.
