Buffalo Soldiers originally were members of the 10th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, formed on September 21, 1866, at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. This nickname was given to the Black Cavalry by Native American tribes who fought in the Indian Wars. The term eventually became synonymous with all of the African-American regiments formed in 1866: 9th Cavalry Regiment. 10th Cavalry Regiment. 24th Infantry Regiment. 25th Infantry Regiment.

Set on an American Army base in 1989, as the Berlin Wall is about to fall, "Buffalo Soldiers" takes a satiric look as these men steal, drink, fight, and make, take, and sell drugs. Elwood (Joaquin Phoenix) is the brains behind the operation, easily duping his superior (Ed Harris) and sleeping with his wife (Elizabeth McGovern). But with the arrival of the new sergeant (Scott Glenn), everything changes.

Vintage contemporaries. A division of random house, inc. New york. It was clear instantly that a great many books had been ruined. The papers in the town clerk’s office were probably safe because the clerk and the selectmen used the front of the building-away from the wave. But the library was going to be a mess to clean up.

Early black infantry regiments were nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers by Native Americans, symbolizing the respect they had for the African-American soldier's bravery and valor. For more than 150 years these descendants of kings and queens, chiefs, leaders, and people of Africa have distinguished themselves with desire, dedication, and discipline. Ollen Hunt, one of the last Buffalo Soldiers, writes in this book about what America has done for him, and what he has done for America. His story is one of desire, dedication, and discipline; of bravery and valor. Throughout his life Ollen has distinguished himself: in the Civilian Conservation Corp, US Army, business, husband and father, and community leader. He has been a true soldier in every aspect of his life. He's shown that regardless of humble beginnings, prejudice, war, and other handicaps and hardships of life, a man can succeed if he adopts the attitude of the early Buffalo Soldier's slogan: deeds, not words! Buffalo Soldier is an uplifting biography and an example of hope for young and old alike.

I knew about the Buffalo Soldiers from military days at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. What I most liked about the book was how very personal it is. I read it at one sitting and then thumbed back through my favorite parts. And, in a sense, it is only partly about Buffalo Soldiers who have contributed greatly to our history--often have not gotten their due--also about the rich life of the military.

I love memoirs and especially when they are so personally written. What the author has done is tackle issues that African American soldiers have faced and put a new face on them. And, better than any book I've seen in a long time, he shows us why the military has been so good at integration and how far they are ahead even to this day on racial issues and equality. Very simply, the author points out that the military sees people as people and are colorless. What a beautiful way to look at it. Ollen Hunt has lots of wisdom. And, he was in the military during such interesting times, i. e., the Nurnberg trials of the Nazis.

In reading the book, it affirmed what a rich life the military provides. This memoir does what a memoir is suppose to do: provide a perspective that makes the reader glad that he's in a world with an author like Hunt. I'm going to order several copies to pass along to friends. A delightful book that deserves a wide readership and thanks to Amazon for giving authors like Ollen a level playing field.

Buffalo Soldier by Ollen Hunt proves to be somewhat of an informative memoirs of man who fought with the 92nd Infantry Division and later had stellar career in the military as well as in business. The 92nd Infantry Division was an all-black unit that fought in Italy during the Second World War. I found the author's account of his experiences to be interesting but written very dry. In this, I didn't sense the passion of a soldier here. It read more like a recollections of an old man looking back with faded memories. I believed this book was written too far after the events and matter of fact style of writing don't reflect the experiences reflected in a war. I was bit disappointed that he didn't go into more details about his experiences with the 92nd, his feeling toward the white officers and other elements that made 92nd Infantry an unique unit. Even his tales of racism lack a certain punch thanks to matter of fact delivery. His story sounds bit too rosy at times. His account of his life after the war ironically proves to be more interesting. I was surprised to learned about his post war army career as a food service organizer as well as his success as a restaurateur in Anchorage, Alaska. Funny that I used to eat at his place, Hof Bau every now and then during its period of operation.

Overall, its a nice book but dryly written and presented. It was more like reading a dossier report. I am bit surprised that with all the photos presented in the book, there is not one of the author with his wife. I thought that was pretty strange.
