The ranch maintains the Salvadoran cavalry horses, which are fed by selling the milk produced by the hundreds of cows. The vets are also here with engineers, doctors, nurses, and communications and logistics personnel from the United States, Canada and Colombia. Over the course of the mission, they will be building schools and providing medical and dental services for needy citizens of El Salvador. They are here supporting Beyond the Horizon, a US Southern Command sponsored, Army South led, joint foreign military interaction and humanitarian exercise occuring until late June. Available in high definition. Includes interviews with Capt. Ryan Miller from Round Rock, Texas.
