I was aware that the guard always carries his rifle on the shoulder away from the tomb.
What I was not aware, the guards wear no rank, so they will never out-rank the unknown.
Only the Sergeant of the Guard wear some rank insignia.
Tonight I was also watching what the guards call their rose ceremony.
One guard escorts the wife and one child if they have children.
That guard has a couple of roses, on the changing of the guard.
One guard, who will wall his last march, the husband of wife being escorted.
Will get the roses from the other guard, he place's one at the tomb.
And one on each plague denoting an unknown soldier from our different wars.
Here on guard laying a few roses, notice he has no rank.
Something America that has forgotten: that the playing field is supposed to be even, but it isnít.
