Tomb Guards Never Forget… Adam Dickmyer
8 years ago
Today marks the two-year anniversary of the loss of Adam Dickmyer. He was killed in action on this day in 2010, in the Kanda-har Province of Afghanistan, protecting our freedoms.
Adam was a husband, son, brother, friend, soldier, and Tomb Guard. He is dearly missed by his family, including all his Tomb Guard brothers. Soldiers never die until they are forgotten, Tomb Guards never forget; #528 - you are not forgotten.
Please visit his in-memory page here to read his obituary and leave a memory or an expression of condolence.

Did you know?
Is the rifle that the Sentinel carries loaded?
Tomb Guards carry fully functional M14 rifles. Given the current climate surrounding the relatively recent tragic events in Canada (attack upon the guard at the Canadian War Memorial), we will no longer be answering questions relating to specifics regarding current security and armament at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We appreciate your understanding.
Rest assured, that the US Army has the post secured as it has been since we started guard duty at the shrine in 1926.
