REMEMBER THE YEAR 2013
“SALUTE TO OUR TROOPS”
Much appreciation goes to Trooper Houston Wedlock who made is possible for us to continue to follow the Legacy of the Buffalo Soldier in Winchester, VA. In the midst of his meetings with the city of Winchester, he became hospitalize for several months, preventing his ability to carry on. Many thanks is given to Trooper Arthur Ames, who stood by Trooper Wedlock every day in communications, along with Troopers Managua Locke and Willie Edley in taking the lead to continue the work with the city planning the event. Prior to Trooper Wedlock’s illness he spoke many times in-depth on the significance of the year 2013 as it relates to the history of Colored Soldiers.
On Friday, July 19th Troopers Willie Edley, Isaac Prentice, Oscar Brayboy, Tony Wilkerson, Arthur Jackson, Clint Brown, Jean Faulcon, Ronald Faulcon, Dahn Ahesahmahk, spent the day at Secret Passage Ranch in Fort Valley, VA to receive Military Reenactment Mounted Training. They met local Re-enactor Jeff Jordan and worked with the horses they would be ride doing a historic 10th Cavalry reenactment ride into downtown Winchester, 100 years ago.
