You may have already seen this photo which has gone viral today because it purports to show the scene at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington, Virginia, during Hurricane Sandy.

Spc. Brett Hyde, Tomb Sentinel, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), keeps guard over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during Hurricane Sandy at Arlington National Cemetery, Va., Oct. 29, 2012. Just like the Sentinel's Creed says "Through the years of diligence and praise and the discomfort of the elements, I will walk my tour in humble reverence to the best of my ability," Hyde lives by this creed. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. Jose A. Torres Jr.)
