Senator Tom Cotton
Listen along with Robert Ringer and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, author of New York Times bestseller Sacred Duty: A Soldier’s Tour at Arlington National Cemetery. Senator Cotton provides details regarding his experience in The Old Guard and its relationship to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Section 60 of Arlington National Cemetery ("the saddest acre in America"), and the historical significance of Arlington. He also discusses why precision and discipline are so important in the Old Guard, the idea of a Supernumerary, and his thoughts on what would happen if Iran were to engage in first-strike military operations against the U.S. Senator Cotton's devotion to America and his unwavering belief in the nobleness of its military mission are refreshing in an age where both are under constant attack by the enemies of Western civilization.
