3d US Cavalry Saber Drill on Fort Myer

Brave rifles 150x131 3d US Cavalry Saber Drill on Fort MyerAfter WW I, Fort Myer was where the famed 3d Cavalry – Brave Rifles – were stationed until they relinquished their horses in 1942 and headed to Georgia to become mechanized.

Thanks to my extensive network, a video clip which was made in 1934 surfaced of these troopers exercising their mounts with sabers drawn on the drill field on Fort Myer.  This joins the other three items that I’ve found that were filmed on Post:

  • the 1909 flight of the Wright Flyer with Orville Wright & LT Frank Lahm
  • the 1934 Movie “Keep ‘Em Rolling”  that introduced the Caisson Song
  • the 1957 segment of The Big Picture with TUSAB* & TOG** on Summerall Field

For your viewing pleasure,  I present below  to you the Brave Rifles on Fort Myer

 

* TUSAB = The US Army Band

**TOG = The Old Guard  - 3d INFANTRY Regiment
