Tom Cotton's inside look at Arlington's Old Guard

On the sidelines of White House ceremonies and at night at Arlington National Cemetery, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) interviewed members of the Army's Old Guard for a book, "Sacred Duty," that he has coming out May 14.

The senator told me he got the idea for the book because when he's campaigning in Arkansas, or when constituents visit him in D.C., the most common military question he gets isn't about iconic Army institutions like Ranger School or Airborne School. It's about Arlington and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, guarded around the clock by the Old Guard.

A group of bipartisan senators sent a letter to President Trump Wednesday night urging him to "reconsider" his proposed withdrawal from Syria.

Details: Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), Joni Ernst (R-Ia.), Angus King (I-Maine), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) all signed onto the letter, writing that a withdrawal of U.S. troops would "renew and embolden" ISIS fighters in the region. They join a chorus of other Republican voices who have spoken out against the move.
