    In NY city, a group of topless women visited the veteran’s memorial there. As much as I fully appreciate topless women, this wasn’t appropriate for a veteran’s memorial and didn’t set well with me.

    Several years ago a tourist decided to jump the rope barrier and approach the Tomb. He was bayoneted in the thigh when he failed to heed the guard’s order to stop. The Old Guard does not take it’s job lightly.
