The Changing of the Guard Ritual is an elaborate ritual that occurs at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and is one of the most popular attractions in Arlington National Cemetery. During The Changing of the Guard Ritual an impeccably uniformed relief commander conducts a detailed white-glove inspection of the incoming Sentinel's weapon, carefully checking each part of the fully functional M14 rifle once.
