Behind the Old Guard - Sentinels

  • The Sentinels at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier stand guard 24 hours a day year-round to protect those that gave everything in service of their nation. What does it take to become a Sentinel? In our new series "Behind the Old Guard," we take an in-depth look at some of the specialty units in the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment.

    A realization I had as I watched this video, the soldiers represented by the tomb are soldiers who gave not just their lives and dreams, but they even gave up their names and identities in the service of their country.

    I respect it but I think it's kinda crazy that these trained soldiers don't have rounds in their rifles in these crazy kind of days

    Eternity will all be about Jesus Christ who died on a cross to save us from our sins. It will not be about any of us or what we have done. Salvation is not about marching or standing guard over bones... they are not there. "IF" man would read and follow the Bible they would see this is all just man made rules and regulations that have nothing to do with God's rules and regulations that we cannot keep and why he sent his only Son to die for our sins. If we could march or guard or fight our way into Heaven, then there was no need for Christ to die. It's all worthless in eternity.
