Battlefield Diaries: Last of the Buffalo Soldiers

Monday, Feb. 21, at 10 p.m.

August 1,1950. The North Koreans begin to hit the U.S. forces hard on their western flank, causing a swift retreat to protect their supply lines out of Pusan. The 24th Regiment, the last segregated, all-black unit in the Army, is sent to patrol the areas around Masan and Haman. Like much of the U.S. Army at the time, this unit suffers from a lack of proper training and is poorly equipped with World War II weaponry and very few armored vehicles. Although the military had been ordered to integrate and to treat blacks as equals in 1948, the 24th or "Deuce-Four" are still considered weak soldiers by many of their white counterparts.
