    Tomb of the Unknown

    ~ The Sentinel’s Creed ~

    My dedication to this sacred duty
    is total and whole-hearted.

    In the responsibility bestowed on me
    never will I falter. And with dignity and perseverance my standard will remain perfection.

    Through the years of diligence and praise and the discomfort of the elements, I will walk my tour in humble reverence to the best of my ability.

    It is he who commands the respect I protect, his bravery that made us so proud.

    Surrounded by well meaning crowds by day, alone in the thoughtful peace of night, this soldier will in honored glory rest under my eternal vigilance.
    - Simon 1971
