    This really happens at a solemn ceremony!! My Wife Marna and I went to see the "Changing of The Guard" on October 10 with my Air Force Granddaughter who is in the Security Forces and stationed in DC. It was a special day as there were about 50 WWll Veterans in attendance also. The crowd on the other end was a little noisy and you could hear them talking and laughing. That was until one of the Marines tore them a new one just like on the video. They were probably some liberal obama lovers who thought they were going to get a free lunch. Larry Evans

    In 1964 while visiting my uncle who lived in Alexandria, Va. we went to the changing of the guard. There were only a few civilians there to watch. It was neat to see the professionalism the soldiers displayed. Like I said there were only a handful of people there. One was a young mother with a three year old. He was tired of standing there and grabbed the chain and swung his weight on it. The soldier stopped readied his rifle and told the mother to "remove that child from the chain." I was shocked at the veracity in his command to the young woman. I have always thought he overreacted. His command scared those near enough to hear it and the child was grabbed by the young mother and wisked away. Dan

    You know they say you can't fix stupid. Anybody with so little lack of respect as to be laughing and carrying on at a ceremony at any military service or tomb should be smacked with the butt of the Guards rifle. There is no excuse for such behavior. Absoultely none.

    I took my Son's to the guard change when visiting in DC back in 1984.

    It was very solmn and there was no need for the guard to hush anyone at the time we were there.

    I am glad he did what he did. Someone mentioned earlier respect is getting harder and harder to find in the younger generation,I agree.
