I just saw an article about an upcoming documentary about the Tomb guards. It was directed by a former Sentinel and he was given unprecedented access to the training and life behind the scenes since he was one previously.

Surprisingly, I watched the trailer link to see if I saw anyone I knew, and sure enough the first guy they show I worked with for a few years. He went on to win Best Ranger a few years ago.

And wasn't one of the Tomb Guard videos floating around this site a few years ago our very own (even though he no longer posts) Ranger H8train telling people how they need to act at the grotto?

I don't think it was H8 but here is the video:

Edit-

In searching for that one, sadly I found that it's not the only one:

Sadly, there are more than a few videos of the guards having to remind people of where they are and what the proper amount of respect is that should be shown.
