Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Fort Huachuca

Fort Huachuca is located in the town of Sierra Vista. At over 71,000 acres, this Fort has everything. We visited a few of the museums, the cemetery, and tried to find the stables but not luck. The mounted Calvary performs on the parade field in full period dress ones a month but we didn't get to see it.

This information is posted at the museum, facing the field.


The Parade field
One of the Museums on this Fort.
The Buffalo Soldiers trained here.
There was a lot of interesting things in the museum, but too many to take pictures of. Here are some actual pictures taken of Geronimo.

This statue commemorates the Indian scout.
Then we visited the Intelligence museum.
Spy planes
Old spy planes
Flew a lot of missions and it had the scares to prove it.
Then we found the cemetery at the far end of the Fort.
One section of headstones didn't list dates, only names and description such as "Infant" or "Child"
This Plaque was mounted at the base of the statue below.

Keep telling that history:

Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, "RaPR", a great story of black military history...the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers.

How do you keep a people down? ‘Never' let them 'know' their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

Read the novel, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, 5 stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the youtube trailer commercial...and visit the website http://www.rescueatpineridge.com

I hope you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote it from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn't like telling our stories...its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see imdb.com at; http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0925633/

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; http://www.alphawolfprods.com and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890's, “spread the word”.

Peace.
