Some soldiers and their horses from Ft. Riley, Kansas, are on their way to Washington, D.C. The 1st Infantry Division Commanding General's Mounted Color Guard will ride in Tuesday's inaugural parade. They're one of a handful of mounted army units in the U.S. and the only ones taking part in this year's ceremony.
