About this title


Early black infantry regiments were nicknamed Buffalo Soldiers by Native Americans, symbolizing the respect they had for the African-American soldier's bravery and valor. For more than 150 years these descendants of kings and queens, chiefs, leaders, and people of Africa have distinguished themselves with desire, dedication, and discipline. Ollen Hunt, one of the last Buffalo Soldiers, writes in this book about what America has done for him, and what he has done for America. His story is one of desire, dedication, and discipline; of bravery and valor. Throughout his life Ollen has distinguished himself: in the Civilian Conservation Corp, US Army, business, husband and father, and community leader. He has been a true soldier in every aspect of his life. He's shown that regardless of humble beginnings, prejudice, war, and other handicaps and hardships of life, a man can succeed if he adopts the attitude of the early Buffalo Soldier's slogan: deeds, not words! Buffalo Soldier is an uplifting biography and an example of hope for young and old alike.

About the Author:

Ollen Hunt was born in McLemoresville Tennessee July 25, 1923, the youngest of 11 children. While serving in the Civilian Conservation Corp he attained the rank of Mess Sergeant. When the CCCs was disbanded Ollen was drafted into the US Army 92nd Infantry Division, E Company, 370 Regiment (Buffalo Soldiers) where he saw action in Florence, Poe Valley, and other front line battles in Italy until the war ended on May 8, 1945. After the war he was shipped to France and then to occupied Germany. Ollen returned to the United States in 1957 and retired at Fort Lewis in 1963. Northwest Airlines brought Ollen and his family to Anchorage, Alaska in 1964. After leaving the airline he operated several food service businesses and a clothing store. Ollen still lives in Anchorage with his wife of 50 years.
