"Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime." I agree wholeheartedly that it is the dedication of a lifetime that defines true patriotism.  You all have given not only your time, dedication and effort, but—most importantly—your very being to the protection and advancement of this great country. You work tirelessly for the rights of the veterans who serve our country, while conducting the nation’s finest civic training to instill young future leaders with the knowledge, understanding and wisdom to govern this country.


The guard in the little shack

In the picture of the guard in the little shack.  There is a phone in there for emergencies, that white box on the wall contains among other things, a spray bottle of water to keep their gloves wet, so the rifle doesn't slip.  They ARE allowed to remain in the shack during inclement weather, and after the cemetery closes to visitors, they need not walk the pad, or be in dress uniform, just guard the tomb. Normally at night the new guards are given the duty to guard the tomb, and they do walk the pad to practice.
