    My brother is in the army and he's a member of the 3rd Infantry Regiment (otherwise known as the Old Guard). Those are the guys that guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers, take part in funerals at Arlington, and do other things in and around Washington, DC.

    On January 20th he will be marching in the Innaugural Parade behind "Pershings Own" (the Army band).

    I will definately be watching!! =)

    lol it will probably be hard to tell which one is him because they all look the same (you have to be a certain height/weight to be selected for this group --- they're all REALLY tall) and they all have to keep their hair extremely short (haircuts pretty much on a weekly basis) and of course they will all be dressed the same. But, I know where he's supposed to be so hopefully I'll be able to spot him.

    I'm pretty excited!
