Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
Since 1948, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (TUS) has been guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in any weather by Tomb Guard Sentinels of The Old Guard. The precision of this elite platoon is witnessed by over 3 million visitors a year who come to watch the changing of the guard at the TUS. Since its creation in 1958, fewer than 600 Tomb Guard Badges have been awarded, making this the Army's least awarded and hardest to earn qualification badge.
