The Old Guard

I don't know how many of you are horsemen. Equus magazine will be familiar to those who are.

This month it carries a piece on a new effort by The Old Guard to help soldiers maimed in the service to become horsemen, too. It will surprise no one here to learn that the Caisson Platoon is behind this effort, which uses theraputic riding to help soldiers who have lost limbs in combat.

There are a number of benefits to riding horseback in terms of strength, balance, and confidence. Our wounded soldiers could not be better served.

Noli Me Tangere! A bold motto, given its history, but good and brave men guard it.
