Fiddler's Green
When a cavalryman dies, he begins a long march to his ultimate destination. About half-way along the road enter a broad meadow dotted with trees and crossed by many streams, known as "Fiddler's Green. As he crosses the green he finds an old canteen, a single spur, and a carbine sling. Continuing on the road he come to a field camp where he finds all troopers who have gone before him, with their campfires, tents and picket lines neatly laid out.

All other branches of the military must continue to march without pause. Cavalrymen though are authorized to dismount, unsaddle and stay in Fiddle's Green...their canteens ever full...the grass alway green, and enjoy the companionship and reminisce with old friends.
