My grandfather, Robert L. Post spoke often of the unit he was once in. He called it the Presidents White Horse Cavalry. I can find no record of this, it sounds like the VA unit at Arlington from his description, but I have a picture of him in riding uniform and he has written on the back..."this is me in the presidents White Horse outfit in Wash. D.C." (1937)
He left the unit after being asked to mistreat his favorite horse. He eventually ended up in the Canal Zone in WWII. (6th A.F.)
