If you’ve spent any time on Facebook this morning, no doubt you’ve seen this picture of soldiers guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, despite a giant Frankenstorm bearing down on the area. Lots of news outlets, like NPR, Talking Points Memo and The Blaze, shared the powerful photo.
Inspiring. Heart Warming. Patriotic. The only problem? As Andrew Beaujon over at Poynter unearthed, the photo is from September, taken in the rain by photographer Karin Markert.
She took a bunch of photos, and you can check them all out here.
Although this photo above was from September, according to the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment, the Army Photo below by Sgt. Jose A. Torres Jr. shows pc. Brett Hyde, Tomb Sentinel, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment keeping guard today.
So if you want to share the correct photo of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier being guarded during Hurricane Sandy, share this one.
