Behind the Scenes:  Army Presidential Salute Battery at Arlington Cemetery

While military funeral guests at Arlington Cemetery certainly hear their pounding cannonfire, they do not see the Presidential Salute Battery (PSB) in action since the PSB serves in restricted areas on the grounds.
Here is a behind the scenes view of the U.S. Army's Presidential Salute Battery as they honor a fallen Marine
 General at Arlington National Cemetery.
Special thanks to SSG Caro
