Soldier seen placing flag at Tomb of Unknown Soldier during torrential rain
“With only a few watching from cover, a Tomb Sentinel approached the Unknowns with U.S. flags in hand. As thunder shook the ground and rains washed down without abandon, the Tomb Sentinel pierced through the elements with breath-taking precision.
“He knelt and placed the flags in honor of the Unknowns. For the select few who saw this moment, it was jaw-dropping. Humans have their limits, but The Old Guard has yet to meet theirs.”
A comment to the post identified the sentinel as Tyler McKee, according to WTHR-TV.
Thousands of homes in the D.C. area lost power in the storm which also knocked down a significant number of trees, WUSA-TV reported.
Several homes were severely damaged.
