Army's Top Horses Help Heal America's Wounded Vets

"This helps us cope with our jobs," said Cpl. Christopher Leonard of the Old Guard Caisson Platoon. "Every day we deal with the funerals, and it can be difficult to mentally handle at times. So, being able to work with the wounded warriors provides a mental release."

"I never have a bad day," Beckman revealed. "To be able to free a person of pain is fabulous."

The program is just one of the many ways the Caisson Platoon continues its longstanding service to America's heroes.

The Old Guard has long honored the fallen -- now they are committed to helping America's wounded warriors recover.
