This duty is an honor. It’s responsibilities are great and unlike any other. Those few who wear the Honor Guard Badge and serve the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery carry that honor for the rest of their lives.

If you have ever been curious about those who Guard the Tomb of the Unknowns, what their days, their training and their motivations are, this documentary series will answer your questions. These few who earn this privileged position in The Old Guard ate a breed unlike any other. They live honor, dignity, and duty publicly every day.
