Changing of the Guard

The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery is a moving experience. Depending on the time of the year, the guard is changed every half-hour in the summer and every hour at night and during the winter. To become a Tomb Guard sentinels, a member of the elite 3rd U.S. Infantry has to be in the best physical condition, be a certain height, have a perfect military record, and pass a number of tests.

During my visit to Washington, I captured this video of the ceremony.
