The Changing of the Guard ~ The Final Walk

The Final Walk of the Sergeant of the Guard
at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Sgt. 1st Class Alfred Lanier, Sergeant of the Guard, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,
lays a rose at the Tomb in remembrance of his final walk on June 25.
Sentinels lay roses signifying leaving the Tomb,
and the love they have for the job and the Unknown

Thank you for your service.

Thank you SFC Lanier and thank you to all who've walked those 21 steps.

That's dedication most young people these days will never understand.
