Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Arlington National Cemetery - The Caisson Platoon. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The scene that defines Arlington National Cemetery is the Caisson Platoon of the 3rd Infantry Regiment, aka the Old Guard, the oldest infantry unit in the United States Army. They conduct one of the most solemn activities in the United States, carrying the remains of a U.S. serviceman to his or her final resting place, a task that this unit will conduct 8 times a day every day of the year.

When you visit Arlington National Cemetery you will see 7 handsome horses. Astride 4 of the horses, carrying soldiers who sit ramrod straight. The horses, head erect, bodies taut and controlled, seem to imitate the solemn military bearing of the men and women who sit quietly in the saddles.

6 of the horses pull a flag draped casket on a black artillery caisson. Both Soldiers and horses are conscious that this is no ordinary ride through a cool, shady country lane. They have the honor of carrying a comrade for his last ride to Arlington National Cemetery, where he will rest in peace with other honored dead.

You will no doubt be compelled to stand at attention or put your hand over your heart and you may even stand and salute….you may even shed a tear.
