In his new book, retired Army master sergeant and Ranger Hall of Fame inductee Edward Posey recounts his time with the US Army’s 2nd Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne). President Truman desegregated the military in 1948, but before the effects truly took hold a group of elite soldiers formed the first and only black SOF unit in 1950. The 2nd Ranger Infantry Company (Airborne) was known as the Buffalo Rangers, or just Buffaloes. As Rangers they were experts in both infantry tactics and irregular warfare. During their ten month stint in Korea the Buffaloes accrued nine Silver Stars, eleven Bronze Stars and 103 purple hearts.
