A video showing a guard’s reaction to two laughing men at a military memorial is going viral (video below).
During a soldier’s memorial at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, a guard was performing a ritual march with a rifle on his shoulder to honor the fallen soldier.
It would be easy to assume that during such an event, people would be on their best behavior to show the utmost respect for those who have given their life for their country. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
When the guard performing the ritual heard two men laughing, he was shocked by the disrespect shown to the fallen soldier on such hallowed ground.
In the video below, the guard can be seen snapping at the men laughing during the ritual.
“It is requested that everyone maintains a level of silence and respect,” the guard says, sternly, staring at the men causing the distraction to make sure his point gets across.
