    Default Tomb of the Unknowns

    God bless our military. God bless these young men who show honor and duty not by their words but by their deeds.

    Not to take anything away from the soldier honor guard who guard the tomb, ABC should check their reports a little better. That pic was exposed as a hoax yesterday. It's actually from last month.

    It follows that a fake news network would use fake pictures.

    Yup....might have known. ABC can send some idiot reporter to film the destruction of the Atlantic City boardwalk but wouldn't send someone to do a small news piece regarding these young men. Perfect.....just perfect.


    Tomb of the Unknowns - Guards want to say "Thank you" for your thoughts and prayers during hurricane Sandy. Humbling....very humbling.

    Yeah, that was proven to be a picture from another time and not from hurricane Sandy, however, I'm pretty sure they were out there doing their job when Sandy rolled through. Just because the reporter couldn't be bothered to get out there in the storm and take a "real" picture dosn't mean the guards weren't there. I think you could safely bet the farm that they were there, right at their assigned posts.
