Buffalo Soldiers Still Remembered

Great to meet and be interviewed by the fabulous Maggie Linton this week at the SiriusXM studios -The Maggie Linton Show.  We discussed my book:  Long Way Home:  A World War II Novel.


Maggie’s father served in both WWII and the Korean War and was a member of one of the African American military units (Buffalo Soldiers) at Fort Leavenworth.


The Buffalo Soldier Monument was an idea that originated with retired Gen. Colin Powell when he was assigned to Fort Leavenworth in the early 1980s as a brigadier general. He believed something should be done to recognize the contributions and achievements of the Buffalo Soldier units.

  1. Dear Ms. Cheryl Head:
    We are producing a documentary film about an African American WWII veteran, Ashley Bryan, who was a stevedore at Omaha Beach during D Day. I see a photo on your website of soldiers unloading equipment on Omaha Beach and would like to know if you know the name of the photographer and if he/she was in one of the military branches. Here is a link to our film’s trailer: https://vimeo.com/156470217 Please let me know what you know about that photo. Thanks.
