Cher Ami (French for "Dear Friend") was one of 600 pigeons which had been donated by pigeon fanciers in Great Britain during World War I for use by the U.S. Army Signal Corps in France. Trained by American Signal pigeoneers, Cher Ami delivered 12 messages during the war. His final message helped save “The Lost Battalion” of the 77th Division during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive in October 1918.

The Riderless Horse - One of the oldest and most evocative of military traditions in a full honor funeral is that of the riderless, caparisoned horse. The horse is led behind the caisson wearing an empty saddle with the riders boots reversed in the stirrups. This indicates the warrior will never ride again. http://www.army.mil/info/organization/unitsandcommands/commandstructure/theoldguard/specplt/caisson.htm #equine_equine, #riderless_horse, #something_beautiful_journal
