When a cavalryman dies, he begins a long march to his ultimate destination. About half-way along the road he enters a broad meadow dotted with trees and crossed by many streams, known as “Fiddler’s Green”.
As he crosses The Green he finds an old canteen, a single spur, and a carbine sling. Continuing on the road he comes to a field camp where he finds all troopers who have gone before him, with their campfires, tents and picket lines neatly laid out.
All other branches of the military must continue to march without pause. Cavalrymen though are authorized to dismount, unsaddle and stay in Fiddler’s Green…their canteens ever full…the grass always green, and enjoy the companionship and reminisce with old friends.
