Stars and Stripes reporters Meredith Tibbetts and Rick Vasquez recently got a up-close look at the horse stables for Arlington National Cemetery's Caisson Platoon. While the duty they perform is a solemn one, the horses can get a little rambunctious. Here's a gallery of some of the more playful b-roll photos during the visit.
