Local boy does well

Young Skopelitan Dimitris Anagnostaras is has a new job.

He is part of the Evzone cadre which guards the Parliament and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The Evzones also raise the flag over the Acropolis on Sundays, which, given that their uniform consists of hob-nail shoes (among other items) and that the Acropolis is covered with slick marble paving stones, is about as dangerous an assignment a soldier can get.
