Colorado has a long history with the Buffalo Soldiers and we had a great group of friends pushing for recognition of the Soldiers, particularly in Colorado Springs.  An illustrious group, I can say Mr. Willie Breazell, former School District 11 Director; former State Senator Ed Jones, Pikes Peak SCLC chairman Henry Allen, and then several Buffalo Soldiers were there to witness and celebrate the passage of the resolution. It was a year long endeavor to arrive at today’s signing.  I am a proud sponsor of the resolution.buffalo-soldiers-capital-1 buffalo-soldiers-capital-2
