Flags In

|

Every year, members of the 3rd United States Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) decorate each of the graves at Arlington National Cemetery with flags for Memorial Day.

This moving and solemn tradition is just one of the many ceremonial duties for which The Old Guard is responsible (for example, it’s the 3rd US Infantry that guards the Tomb of the Unknowns).
