    Not discussing long gun carry - sharing belief in Duty, Honor et al.

    Amazing dedication to those principles by those who guard the tombs of the unknowns.

    Great post.

    I was able to go on the Honor Flight this past spring with my 91 year old father who is a WWII Vet. And standing there watching the changing of the guards with my father and being a vet myself was an awesome experience.

    Thanks for the post.

    Here's the Revolutionary war prison ship tomb in Ft Greene Park in Brooklyn NY. Contains remains of just a few of the 11,000 soldiers that died in Wallabout bay there on the East River.

    It may be the most prestigious post in the Army, but I never once envied those 3rd Regiment boys their duties.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.

    I liked it better when they carried the M1 instead of the M14. At least then I could pretend they were guarding with a loaded rifle.

    Wait! What? The guards at the Tower of London carry live weapons.

    Skip to 3:20. (Keyboard warning if you watch more. This guard is hilarious.)

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
