Most Americans are deeply proud of our military and would do anything to honor it.
Here in the United States, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery is one of the most solemn places in the country.
According to War History Online, the tomb was originally built in 1921 to honor those who perished in WW1 and was later expanded in 1931 to honor the unknown soldiers who lost their lives.
President Donald Trump, like many presidents before him, showed up at the memorial to honor all of the unknown soldiers who died in battle.

An Honor Guard was performing his ceremonial duties on Monday, but stopped to put a group of disrespectful people in their place.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Not a peep was heard following the guard’s scolding to the crowd, as they apparently grasped the disgrace of acting that way in a place of such honor.
Good for this guard for demanding the crowd’s respect. The virtue of honor and respect is slipping in American society and must be fought for, especially when it comes to respecting those who have fought and died for our freedoms.
Shame on those spectators for making so much noise during a solemn moment.
