Honor: Sentries marching at Tomb of the Unknown Soldier endure 60-85 mph winds

Americans have been given many reasons in recent few years to question the integrity of the institutions that make up the federal government, including the U.S. military which falls further and further under the woke spell of radical left elements.

With terms like “diversity” and “equity” being weaponized to advance a political agenda, the nation was provided with a much-needed reminder over the weekend that dedication to duty and honor are virtues that remain intact for some.

Damaging thunderstorms and hurricane-force wind gusts swept through the Washington, D.C., area on Saturday and through the worst of the storm, a lone sentry marched outside the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. When winds hit a peak, the soldier simply leaned into the force and continued marching.

“We couldn’t be prouder of the @USArmyOldGuard Soldiers who watch over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,” the Arlington National Cemetery tweeted from its official account, while sharing footage of the soldier. “Winds reached 60-85 mph in the DC region. This sentinel leans into it and continues marching. Honor.”

For the record, soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment stand watch over the Tomb of the Unknown 365 days a year, regardless of weather.
