I've always been intrigued at all of the small nuances of the ASU as well as anything to do with Drill and Cermony. These interests came together at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. However I noticed that Tomb Guards wear the uniform without a nameplate. I've scoured the internet to find an answer for this and have come up empty handed.

Because we don't do the job for recognition. Our job is to respect the Unknowns. All of us are just Tomb Guards. Yes I'm am a Tomb Guard

SFC Odom, Thank you and all the Old Guard for honoring our Brothers and Sisters in Uniform. What is the protocol for placing a Wreath and how can request be made?

Cameron Smith not sure but I would assume that since it is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and they are selected to represent Soldiers that they do not wear nameplates as they represent the unknown and everyone else.

I don't have an answer, I'm just impressed with the observation.
