"The Scout"
statue of Buffalo Bill

William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody, a Pony Express rider at age 14,  was an American scout, bison hunter, and showman.

He served the Union Army private in Company H, 7th Kansas Cavalry, during the Civil War from 1863 to the end of the war in 1865.

In 1872, Cody was awarded the Medal of Honor for service as a civilian scout to the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, for "gallantry in action" at Loupe Forke, Platte River, Nebraska.

In 1895, Cody was instrumental in the founding of the town of Cody, the seat of Park County, in northwestern Wyoming. Today the Old Trail Town museum is at the center of the community and commemorates the traditions of Western life.

It is fitting that the 508th held their reunion in Cody, 100 years after its founding.
