Fire-Jumping Battalion

A couple photos ran in The Post the following day. The soldier is from Troop E, Third Calvary, Fort Myer, the fire-jumping battalion. The location is Noyes' farm at Sligo, MD.

Amazing

Shouldn't this be regarded as rather amazing? My limited experience with horses suggests that running them toward fire goes against every instinct they have. This must be one well-trained mount. Poor thing. It's hard to believe he'd do it more than once, given that his hind feet must have gotten a little warm there. Oh, and, "The sheriff is near!"
