Old Guard will practice shooting drills in the morning

If you happen to hear the crack of rifles tomorrow morning coming from Arlington Cemetery, it’s not a zombie invasion, nor is it the first part of Red Dawn. The Old Guard will be practicing firing drills from 7a to 8a in the morning tomorrow, part of the rituals that mark the final honors rendered to our fallen.  Don’t panic.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. I think it means they’ll be firing their big, booming cannon again rather than rifles. Not sure though.
