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.
