The Marine Corps' last remaining mounted color guard is celebrating a half-century of service this year, with appearances everywhere from the Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA, to NRG Stadium at Rodeo Houston.

On Friday, the four-member ceremonial unit will add southwestern Idaho's Treasure Valley to its list of performance sites for the first time at the Caldwell Night Rodeo.

Along with presiding over the rodeo's Patriot Night, the Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard will swear in a group of 70 new Marines who hail from the Boise, Idaho, area.

Founded in 1967 by Lt. Col. Robert Lindsley, the Marine Corps Mounted Color Guard is based in Bartow, CA, and rides wild mustangs that were adopted from the Bureau of Land Management's Adopt a Horse and Burro Program.

"The patriotism at events like this make us feel better about the work we do," Staff Sgt. Nicholas Beberniss told the Idaho Press Tribune.

As one of the most popular nights of the rodeo, the evening will feature a flyover by WWII-era P-40 Warhawk planes as well.

A portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the CNR's Military Relief Fund, which supports the needs of local wounded or fallen service members and veterans and their families.
