Yep, Sebbie, so, it may as well have been this weeks photo cause I am sure it would look just the same.... maybe with more rain and bigger winds.

Nope Army. Here is some info from Wikipedia ... pretty interesting really. More info here: https://tombguard.org
Since 1948, the Tomb Guards, a special platoon within the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment
(The Old Guard) work on a team rotation of 24 hours on, 24 hours off,
for five days, taking the following four days off. A guard takes an
average of six hours to prepare his uniform – heavy wool, regardless of
the time of year – for the next day's work. In addition to preparing the
uniform, guards also conduct physical training, Tomb Guard training,
participate in field exercises, cut their hair before the next work day,
and at times are involved in regimental functions as well. Tomb Guards
are required to memorize 16 pages of information about Arlington
National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, including the
locations of nearly 300 graves and who is buried in each one.[32]

A special Army decoration, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier Guard Identification Badge
is authorized for wear after passing a detailed test of 100 questions
(from a pool of more than 300), a uniform test with two gigs (errors) or
fewer (measured to the 1/64"), and a test on the guard changing
sequence. After serving honorably for a period of nine months, and
having passed the sequence of tests, a Tomb Guard is permanently awarded
the Badge. Since the first award on February 7, 1958, fewer than 600
soldiers have completed training and been awarded this Badge, including
three women. A small number of Tomb Guard Identification Badges have
also been retroactively awarded to soldiers who served as Guards before
1959. Those numbers make the Badge the second rarest award currently
issued in the United States Army; only the Army Astronaut Badge is rarer.[nb 5]

The badge was designed in 1956 and first issued to members of the
Honor Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns on February 7, 1958. The badge
was first issued only as a temporary wear item, meaning the soldiers
could only wear the badge during their tenure as members of the Honor
Guard. Upon leaving the duty, the badge was returned and reissued to
incoming soldiers. In 1963, a regulation was enacted that allowed the
badge to be worn as a permanent part of the military uniform, even after
the soldier's completion of duty at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
