"The Tomb Guards maintain a constant vigil at the Tomb no matter the weather conditions," states the group's Facebook page. Members of the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, also known as "The Old Guard" are staying with the Tomb of the Unknown Solider at Arlington National Cemetery despite blizzard conditions slamming the area.

Major cities, roadways and airports along the East Coast were largely immobilized Saturday by a massive and deadly snowstorm that showed no signs of letting up.

Public transportation in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., was shut down as local officials called on residents to hunker down and stay off the streets for a second day.

As of early Saturday, more than 60 million people were under blizzard, winter storm or freezing rain warnings. The storm's effects stretched from Georgia to Massachusetts, according to Weather.com.

Despite the blizzard conditions, the guards remained in place. The images that they have shared are a stirring depiction of how dedicated our nation's soldiers are.
