"For Arlington’s Old Guard, the mission is to honor, and the standard is perfection" PBS NewsHour 5/27/2019
SUMMARY: Arlington National Cemetery is well known as the final resting place for fallen U.S. soldiers. Less famous is the elite unit that performs the funerals for these military heroes: The Old Guard, the Army’s oldest active duty regiment [since 1784]. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) who served in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as The Old Guard, covers it in his new book, “Sacred Duty,” and joins Judy Woodruff to discuss.
