Veterans group stages cavalry re-enactment
The group Veterans Silent Cavalry is putting on a re-enactment of a cavalry supply patrol. They’ll be going from Cheyenne to Fort Laramie, riding in formation and dressed in cavalry uniforms from the 1800s.
Organizer Doug Gumm says they’re trying to raise money for injured service members. And he says they’ve gotten a lot of support from local businesses already.
“And we’ve had several ranches that are allowing us to camp on their properties as a donation,” Gumm said. “We’ve had a couple ranches give us feed for the horses.”
Gumm says they’re hoping to raise $20,000 in total. He says they also want to educate the public about the sacrifices that service members have made during their time in the military.
