Historic Military Talk

Thursday, February 21st. With guest speakers, SSG Frazier Raymond Jr., (U.S. Army, Retired) and Mr. Wilson Keller.

Buffalo Soldiers at the  Vancouver Barracks

In the 1890s and during World War II, African American soldiers sometimes called Buffalo Soldiers served at the Vancouver Barracks. Mr. Wilson Keller will talk about an interpretive sign about the Buffalo Soldiers he is designing and installing at the Vancouver Barracks.

We are sorry, but we had to change the subject of the talk given by retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Frazier Raymond. Originally, he was to speak about Cathay Williams, the only known female Buffalo Soldier. Instead, he will speak the overall history and heritage of the Buffalo Soldiers, ranging from their beginnings at the end of the Civil War to the early 20th Century.
