Wednesday Hero - Buffalo Soldiers
This Weeks Post Was Suggested By Cindy
I sat for three days trying to figure out how to write this post and I couldn't figure out how to do it right. The Buffalo Soldiers are such an important part of not only military history, but American history as well. So how do you condense 85 years of history into a couple of paragraphs and not skip over something important? They were the first all Black military regiment. They played a role in every war from the Civil War to the Korean. They gave rise to the Park Rangers and the Tuskegee Airmen. And they've had 23 men be awarded the Medal Of Honor. While not a forgotten part of history, the Buffalo Soldiers are certainly a part of it that doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look
