Changing of the Guard Mishap

At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, watch the ultimate discipline of our US Sentinel during the Changing of the Guard. 

Tomb Sentinel is one of the most difficult badges to earn in the U.S. Military, and only one-tenth of soldiers who ever try to earn it are successful.

During the inspection the relief Commander drops the rifle and the bayonet stabs the relief Sentinel's foot. The Sentinel's bravery and total commitment, continued to performed his duty flawlessly while in distress. We solute you! The brave Sentinel was relieved of his duties shortly after he arrived at the guardhouse.

To listen and understand; to question and disagree; to treat no proposition as sacred and no objection as impious; to be willing to entertain unpopular ideas and cultivate the habits of an open mind — this is what  Bret Stephens encourages.

New York Times Columnist delivered the keynote speech, addressing the dying art of disagreement.


“No, Barry, I want you to want to help bury the evidence.”



 How many of these apply to you?

 1.  I have read fiction when I was depressed, or to cheer myself up.

 2.  I have gone on reading binges of an entire book or more in a day.

 3.  I read rapidly, often 'gulping' chapters.

 4.  I have sometimes read early in the morning or before work.
 5.  I have hidden books in different places to sneak a chapter without
being seen.

 6.  Sometimes I avoid friends or family obligations in order to read novels.

 7.  Sometimes I rewrite film or television dialog as the characters speak.

 8.  I am unable to enjoy myself with others unless there is a book nearby.

 9.  At a party, I will often slip off unnoticed to read.

 10. Reading has made me seek haunts and companions which I would otherwise avoid.

 11. I have neglected personal hygiene or household chores until I have finished a novel.

 12. I have spent money meant for necessities on books instead.

 13. I have attempted to check out more library books than permitted.

 14. Most of my friends are heavy fiction readers.

15. I have sometimes passed out from a night of heavy reading.

 16. I have suffered 'blackouts' or memory loss from a bout of reading.

 17. I have wept, become angry or irrational because of something I read.

 18. I have sometimes wished I did not read so much.

 19.  Sometimes I think my reading is out of control.

 If you answered 'yes' to three or more of these questions, you may be a literature abuser. Affirmative responses to five or more indicates a serious problem. Once a relatively rare disorder,  Literature Abuse, or LA, has risen to new levels due to the accessibility of higher education and increased  college enrollment since the end of the Second World War.  The Number of literature abusers is currently at  record levels.
