6. A creative shot:

At the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, dedicated to all the unidentified soldiers who died in service, a guard from the US Army walks back and forth down a straight line for an hour at a time and wears no rank insignia so he does not outrank any the Unknowns. This guard position is very rarely bestowed and considered one of the highest honors.
