Commander Frank Bradford of the 10th NY Cavalry invited us to join him at Center Moriches Middle School for a full day demo. This was our first time performing at the school. In the morning, we set up camp inside the track and at noon there was a Cavalry and Infantry demo with firing. And there was lots and lots of food! Center Moriches certainly knows how to keep a soldier happy.
