I've always been interested in this duty assignment.
In the late 80's when I was with the 82'nd they were recruiting and I thought of putting in for it.
Is it true they have to swear of ETOH? And whats the chances they carry live rounds?
Anyone have any first hand or close experience...........We took our kids to DC aways back, the Wall, Alington and the Tomb were very impressionable...........

This doesn't answer all your questions, but Mike Ritland interviews a former Tomb Guard (who then went on to S.F., Delta, and contracted for the CIA) on his podcast (hopefully cued up to 31:08).
