    That was bad ass. I hope whoever was disrespecting that place of honor had 1000 eyes on them full of scorn.

    I remember when I went to the USS Arizona Memorial and a bunch jabbering gooks thought the whole scene was funny. Disrespectful fucks.

    I went to the Arizona in October of 2001, one month after 9/11. No gook dared to say a fucking word when I went.

    Good to see him take advantage of the power while he has it, in two years when he's back on his parent pig farm in arkansas slopping the hogs, nobody will give a shit that he ever existed.

    He's probably not a pig shit farmer...not everyone can be selected to guard the tomb...You don't just walk back and forth clicking your heels...it's the pinnacle of a rigorous selection process..

    Taking advantage? Those assholes are supposed to be silent, not making noise and laughing. He did his job and did it damn well. I'm sure he's more well known and respected now than ever.

    I knew a guy who did two tours guarding the Tomb in the early 70s. He loved it and said it is still the thing he is most proud of.

    Nice! Been there a few times and it's amazing.

    The changing of the guard is something not to be missed.

    I was impressed. He got his point across without so much as one wasted word. Nicely handled.

    If you serve 9 months, you get to keep the silver badge and ribbon on your uniform. The tests are hardcore, you have to memorize 7 pages of rules and facts, plus learn over 300 graves locations. Pass an oral examine that requires a 95% to pass and then MAYBE you will get to assist in the daily changing of the guard. No diet privates, midgets or shade tree soldiers need apply.

    The soldiers in the shirt and ties look like soup sandwiches.

    I was there in eighth grade and some dumb broad had her phone ringing during the changing of the guard. The guards were not pleased.

    Do you think the guys in the tomb would be that bothered if there were people talking? I wouldn't, but it was cool to see anyway.

    Technically speaking not is an "officer". An enlisted puke who had to work his ass off to get the privledge to stand that duty. He is within his call of duty to call the dumb asses out.

    i've personally witnessed someone acting like a asshole at the ceremony. The staff sgt. performing the ceremony came within 5 feet of the asshole and berated him much worse than this soldier did. When you act inappropriately in a place like this, you deserve nothing less.
