Like Kurtis said, the old guard soldiers are the epitome of dedication and professionalism. Many people don't realize that their duties extend far beyond guarding the tomb.

The Old Guard mission statement:

The 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) conducts memorial affairs to honor our fallen comrades and ceremonies and special events to represent the Army, communicating its story to our Nation's citizens and the world.
On order, conducts defense support of civil authorities and deployes elements in support of Overseas Contingency Operations.
