The Old Guard
3d Infantry Regiment “The Old Guard”
The initial Third Regiment was formed by the direction of President George Washington on March 5, 1792, for the protection of the frontiers of the United States. In 1948, the Third United States Infantry assumed the duties as official Army Honor Guard and escort to the President, conducting military ceremonies at the White House, the Pentagon, and national memorials. But even with those great honors, the duties that the people of our nation and the world most recognize are the distinct privileges of maintaining the twenty-four-hour-a-day vigil at the Tomb of the Unknowns and providing military funeral escorts at Arlington National Cemetery.
