Traditional Staff Ride
Military parks and battlefields offer unique opportunities where today's military students can train on the actual lands where military actions took place. This tradition stems from when many battlefield parks were part of the war department prior to the 1930s. Then staff rides were conducted on horseback. Today military trainees travel on a bus through the park. The National Park Service preserves these places where future soldiers can learn from the stories and tactics of those who came before them.
