The changing of responsibility is a time honored tradition, running deep with symbolism and heritage. On 1 July 2021, First Sergeant Jenkins passed the HardRock Company, One Legion 1st BN, 3rd US INF REG, (The Old Guard) Chapultepec Swagger Cane to, First Sergeant Thompson during Change of Responsibility ceremony, symbolizing a transition of duty.

Swagger canes, held by the first sergeants of each company in The Old Guard, are deeply rooted in military tradition. The cane was the mark of the centurion, and with it came the responsibility to lead and discipline their formations. The swagger cane used in today’s ceremony is an exact replica of the original Chapultepec baton, presented to the Third Infantry Regiment in 1848 by Brigadier General Persifor Smith for unit excellence and courage during their valiant assault of the Chapultepec fortress during the Mexican-American war.

In my humble opinion... The Most Honorable Responsibility ... on Earth
Was sent this Ceremonial Order from a former member of TOG back in 1977. This was for the Carter Inauguration departure ceremony at Andrews AFB for former POTUS Jerry and Betty Ford, Jan 20, 1977. Guns platoon was once a platoon under H co. Pretty interesting to see this! Such history.
OUTSTANDING!
I've been around alot of military. You guys are 1st class.
What’s going with thus firing line ?
One can only have so much admiration for these men and what they do. God Bless all of you.
I don't know if this is an appropriate thing to ask (let me know!), but... I was curious if anyone in contact with a veteran who served in Normandy during WWII? I would be so grateful to find one. 🙏💛🇲🇫️
Thank you to the men of One Legion who provided honors today at the funeral for MG (Ret) Michitsch. As always, your performance was flawless. His family and friends are grateful for your service and dedication.
