Our Mission

The Foundation of the Old Guard, Inc. provides charitable and educational support that benefits the soldiers, families, and veterans of the 3d United States Infantry Regiment - The Old Guard.

Today, The Old Guard is the face of the US military to our nation and the entire world. 

For many Americans—indeed, for many of those around the world—the 3d US Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) is the most visible element of the United States’ capable and dedicated military force. With two battalions and its headquarters stationed at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, just outside Washington, DC, and adjacent to Arlington National Cemetery, The Old Guard is a constant example of the precision, discipline, and capability of the rest of America’s military.  With Soldiers selected from throughout the Army, the Regiment enjoys the expertise and leadership abilities developed through their service in other units around the world, in and out of theaters of war.  Whether the public sees the Regiment’s Soldiers honoring fallen comrades, maintaining military traditions in ceremonies, ready to provide military assistance during National Special Security Events, or sustaining their tactical proficiency, our Army’s oldest active serving infantry regiment provides an awe-inspiring image of the American military that is serving around the world.
