Our friend “Post to Parks” on Facebook left us a nice comment here on our page regarding how the U.S. Cavalry helped save our national parks. And our further research discovered that even Army Rangers used to protect and guard Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks. On the National Park Service website is the following:
“In the late 1800’s there were rangers in Yellowstone and Yosemite protecting our nation’s treasures. But they weren’t Park Rangers. They were Army “Rangers” – actually, members of M Troop of the First United States Cavalry.”
This only further supports the Post to Parks comment; and we wish to thank them for their entry and friendship. Swing on over to their page here on Facebook and check them out and give ’em a like. And help each of us support our veterans and national parks!
