In the quarters beneath the Tomb of the Unknowns, known as the "Catacombs," one Tomb Sentinel assists another in the meticulous, hours-long preparation of his uniform before he "walks the mat" in front of the Tomb. On Memorial Day, like every day between April and October, guards change in front of the Tomb every half hour on the half hour in a precise ritual.

无名烈士墓下方的地下墓室里,一名墓地哨兵花了几个小时一丝不拘地帮另一名将要去墓前走正步的哨兵整理制服。就像四月到十月间的任何一天,阵亡将士纪念日那天,墓地守卫每个半点在严格的仪式中换岗。
