ARLINGTON, Va. — On his last walk as a guard at Arlington National Cemetery’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Sgt. Antonio Garcia stopped to place roses on each crypt in a moving ceremony.
Garcia participated in a traditional ritual commemorating the end of his time as a guard. The final walk also gives guards like him a chance to pay their respects to the unknown soldiers and their fellow tomb protectors.
