Rude Crowd Disrespects THIS Tomb. How The Guard Reacts To Them Is EPIC

There is something really awe-inspiring about viewing the changing of the guard at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA.  It takes place at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, which is commemorated to the men and women who gave their lives for the United States, and died without their remains being identified.

The changing of the guard is an austerely choreographed series of steps and movements that  include the juxtaposition of the soldier’s rifle.  The actions of the soldier alternate between sharp sounds and silence.  The silence is both an act of respect for the fallen soldiers, and required for the majesty of the movements.

After each change is finished, the ceremony goes on, alternating between regimented walking and stillness.   Salutation of the tomb occurs before the soldiers fall into step, after replacing the sentinel who finishes his duty.  This exchange goes on throughout the day, as the monument is always guarded.

Being a guard is taken quite seriously by those who are honored to do the job.  They expect silence by visitors who come to watch the ceremony.  On the particular day, that you are about to watch on the video below, the visitors did not follow the required rules of silence.  Watch what happens as they rudely disregard the seriousness of viewing this cemetery.  They clearly get the message from the guard, who is astounded by the lack of respect.  Let us know what you think about this most unexpected moment.
