“The Old Guard” is the Army's official ceremonial unit and es**rt to the president, and it also provides security fo

r Washington, D.C., in time of national emergency or civil disturbance. The unit received its unique name from Gen. Winfield Scott during a victory parade at Mexico City in 1847 following its valorous performance in the Mexican War. Fifty campaign streamers attest to the 3rd Infantry's long history of service, which spans from the Battle of Fallen Timbers to World War II and Vietnam. Since World War II, “The Old Guard” has served as the official Army Honor Guard and es**rt to the President. In that capacity, 3rd Infantry soldiers are responsible for conducting military ceremonies at the White House, the Pentagon, national memorials and elsewhere in the nation's capital. In addition, soldiers of “The Old Guard” maintain a 24-hour vigil at the Tomb of the Unknowns, provide military funeral es**rts at Arlington National Cemetery and participate in parades at Fort Myer and Fort Lesley J. The black-and-tan "buff strap" worn on the left shoulder by each member of the 3rd Infantry is a replica of the knapsack strap used by 19th-century predecessors of the unit to display its distinctive colors and distinguish its members from other Army units. The present buff strap continues to signify an Old Guard soldier's pride in personal appearance and precision performance that has marked the unit for 200 years. A further distinction of The Old Guard is the time-honored custom of passing in-review with fixed bayonets at all parades. This practice, officially sanctioned by the War Department in 1922, dates to the Mexican War in 1847 when the 3rd Infantry led a successful bayonet charge against the enemy at Cerro Gordo. Today, this distinction is still reserved for “The Old Guard” alone.

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.

I making contact with you from my personal Facebook site but if anyone is able to see the following link and has the ability to make the right contacts to support the memorial on the behalf of the family's schedule for August 1 , 2017 I/we would greatly appreciate it.
