331 – Colonel Wesley Martin – Buffalo Soldiers
Colonel Martin came on Oscar Mike Radio in December 2022 to talk with me about PFC Denisha Montgomery Smith. I learned a lot about leadership, military criminal investigations, and how one person can make a difference.
I was keen to have Colonel Martin back on to talk with me because of the article I read on his site about Buffalo Soldiers. He had done a lot of research on their service and there are lessons we can apply today from their legacy.
The conversation moved to the Tuskegee Airmen and General Powell. Learning about how the Tuskegee Airmen served our country and finer points of “The Powell Doctrine” brought parts of our history to life in a way that I hadn’t thought about previously. I got the sense we had just scratched the surface of the stories of these amazing individuals.
