The Old Guard is recognized as the Armyís most prestigious and historic unit. It is the Nationís and our Armyís oldest active duty Infantry unit, established on June 3, 1784. For more than 200 years, it has continued to serve our country with distinction, dedication and valor.

On September 11th, 2001, the Old Guard again rose to the occasion searching for survivors and recovering victims from the terrorist attack on the Pentagon. Since then, they have even deployed Soldiers to the Horn of Africa in support of the Global War on Terrorism.

The mission of the Old Guard Monument Foundation is to recognize the contributions of the 3rd United States Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) and its unique role in our Nation's history. The foundation was established to pay tribute to past, present and future members by gifting a monument to the United States Army.

The monument will be located at Fort Myer, Virginia and will serve as a lasting symbol honoring the Regimentís important role in our Nationís military history.

This Regiment has given so much to this country its time to honor them with a bigger than life monument designed as a dramatic "thank you" for their selfless service.  

It's a shame that a monument has not been erected sooner. The Old Guard has increased visibility from its role in 9/11 disaster rescue, participation in recent presidential funerals and patriotism fueled by daily visible sacrifices by soldiers at war. And, now contributions are needed to ensure the imminent monument completion.
