The Old Guard

About a year ago I began working on a long-term project focusing on the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Regiment "Old Guard." The Old Guard is based at Fort Myer in Arlington, Va. and conducts funeral missions inside Arlington National Cemetery. Whenever I had a rare morning or afternoon off I would try and get over to Fort Myer to shoot. This project hit close to home as this same unit conducted the burial service for my cousin, Pfc. David H. Sharrett in January of 2008.
