Remains of Buffalo Soldiers reburied with honors

Buffalo Soldiers

TUCSON -- The remains of three black Buffalo Soldiers who served more than 130 years ago in the American southwest will be reburied with full military honors July 28 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in New Mexico.

Retired Army Maj. Gen. Julius Parker, one of the Army's highest ranking African American military intelligence officers, will deliver the eulogy while members of the LD29 south side Tucson-based Arizona Buffalo Soldiers Association, dressed in period uniforms, will serve as pallbearers.
