The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a place most people come to lament in silent reflection.
In the video that captured the incident, the soldier guarding the tomb can be seen patrolling the area in front of it.
The soldier, taking control of the situation without hesitation, turns and faces the crowd, before calling out those failing to be silent on such hallowed ground.
Using a typical military tone, he lets them know in no uncertain terms that they’re expected to show the proper respect.
Needless to say, his message was received loud and clear!
At such a place it’s always important to be mindful of where you are and what it stands for. It doesn’t take much to give others the peace of mind they’re seeking by simply remaining quiet, and of course we should always show respect to those who laid down their very lives for the freedoms and liberties we retain today.
If you agree that the soldier was in the right for reprimanding the people in the crowd, share this article on Facebook.
