The Fife and Drum Corps is the only unit of its kind in the armed forces, and is patterned after the Revolutionary Fife and Drum Corps from Gen. George Washington's Army. Dempsey participates in military 'Old Guard Unit" For most Americans, Memorial Day, a time to remember the country's war veterans, happens only once a year. For Vanessa Dempsey, daughter of Dan and Lynn Dempsey, rural F'onnoso, every day is Memorial Day. Dempsey, an army Private first class, is a member of the 3rd U.S. Infantry, commonly known as the Old Guard, Fort Myer,,Va. Although its mission is to act as the U.S. Army's official ceremonial unit, there' s a lot more to the Old Guard than just flashy uniforms. Soldiers like Dempsey serve as sen- tincls at the Tomb of the Unknowns, provide casket teams, honor guards and firing parties for countless funer- als at the Arlington National cemetery, and take part in parades and festivals throughout the country. Other Old Guard units include the Commander-in-Chief's Guard, the U.S. Army Dri II Team and the Fife and Drum Corps. Duc to its high profile mission, Old Guard soldiers are selectively chosen, wid~ stringent height, weight and test- ing requirements. Dempsey, a broad- cast journalist, has been a member for six months. "1 jnined the Old Guard because I th~mght it would offer me the opportu- nity to be a part of a great unit doing an honorable job," said Dempsey, a 1999 graduate of Valley Center High School. As a member of the Old Guard's public affairs office, an integral part o1 Dempscy's job takes place at military ceremonies where she videotapes the proceedings and announces. She also writes articles for the base newspaper. "I truly enjoy watching people leav- ing after a ceremony," Dempsey said. "I feel proud when I see their faces and know they enjoyed what I helped to do." Old Guard soldiers participate in ceremonies and events ranging from performances for the president at the White House to attendance at NATO summits. Although all events are sig- nificant, for Dempsey, some are more poignant than others. "My most memorable event was when I went on my first mission with the drill team" Dempsey said. "I an- nounced at the ceremony, and got-an adrenaline rush when I saw how ex- cited the young people were to see such an outstanding team." Most people celebrated Memorial .... Day this year with picnics, parades and aday off from work. But for Dempsey, this holiday was just another day on the job. "Every morning I wake up and see the seemingly endless rows of grave- stones in the Arlington National Cem- etery," Dempsey said. "It reminds me every morning what this country means to me and the sacrifices that must be made to keep our freedom preserved." Dempsey's grandparents are Forrest and Vera Dempsey, Formoso. Army Pfc.Vanessa L. Dempsey, a member of the Old Guard, inspects her ceremonial dress blue uniform. The Old Guard is the oldest infantry unit in the army, predating the Constitution of the United States to 1784.
