Because I actually served in a traditionally African-American U.S. Army Cavalry Regiment?’ Scout, A Troop,1/10 Cav. The Buffalo Soldier Regiment. I must be guilty of Cultural Appropriation. B.S. I had no choice in the matter as to my assignment. I ended up in the Tenth Cavalry purely on the whim of the Army Personnel System. Still, I am proud to have been a White, enlisted Buffalo Soldier, and to have inherited my Regiment’s lineage and honors.
