Buffalo Soldier Memorial Ceremony
WEST POINT, N.Y. – The Buffalo Soldiers Association of West Point will hold its 55th annual memorial ceremony on Sunday, Sept. 4 from 12:15-1 p.m. at Buffalo Soldier Field.
 
The annual ceremony honors the 9th and 10th Cavalry Regiments. These African American Soldiers served in the Indian Wars; Spanish-American War; both World Wars, and the Korean Conflict. Additionally, these Calvary regiments were assigned to West Point in the early 1900’s to support riding instruction and mounted drill for the Corps of Cadets until 1946.
 
Today, they are celebrated with an annual ceremony to pay tribute to the devotion and exemplary service they provided to the nation as a Buffalo Soldier.
 
The public is cordially invited to attend the ceremony where Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen, academy superintendent, will serve as guest speaker for the event.
