Most young people don't know what an honor it is and the pride those solders take to guard the tombs. Long hours and a lot of hard work to even prepare to do that job. It takes 6 hours to even shine their own shoes and there can not even be a speck of lint on their uniforms. They can not even have a drink of alcoholoff duty and must be of utmost behavior at all times..
