Student Gives Conclusion of
Salute To Veterans Program

During Today's Presentation
A Member of the Campbellsville Junior Guard
Simulated The Steps The Guards Take
At The Tomb Of the Unknown Soldiers
Arlington National Cemetery, Washington DC

The Tomb Guard:

Marches 21 steps down the black mat behind the Tomb.
Turns, faces east for 21 seconds.
Turns and faces north for 21 seconds.
Takes 21 steps down the mat

Each turn the guard makes is precise and is instantly followed
by a loud click of the heels as he snaps them together.

After each turn, the Guard executes a sharp "shoulder-arms" movement
to place the weapon on the shoulder closest to the visitors
to signify that the Guard stands between the Tomb and any possible threat.
