The Unknown Soldier. Many nations have a Tomb to The Unknown Soldier. Because the Unknown can never be identified, that soldier becomes the most honored soldier buried, representing all the unknown dead of any and all wars. Characteristic of Tombs to the Unknown is an around-the-clock Honor Guard. One of the most moving things to watch is the changing of the Guard at a Tomb to the Unknown. The guard is always mounted in any weather. There was an incident of a lightning strike close to The Tomb to the Unknown in Arlington, Virginia. The guard never turned a hair as he stood there, soaked through.
