Soldier’s Amish upbringing comes full circle

Sgt. Ruben Troyer, senior horse trainer, Caisson platoon, 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), allows Rambler, a Caisson horse, to sniff his saddle before placing it on Rambler's back during a horse training session at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Va., earlier this month. Troyer ensures each Caisson horse is comfortable with being ridden before the horse participates in any Caisson missions ranging from military funerals to parades.
