Wellington “Scorpion” Hall 
VP & Prospect Committee Chair

I was born in Belize, Central America, where I received all of my formal education. I came to the United States at the age of 22, and joined the US Army in 1970. I took my basic training at Fort Dix, NJ, and my AIT at Fort Gordon, Ga as a Military Policeman. I also conducted Airborne Training at Fort Benning, where my first permanent assignment brought me to Fort Bragg, NC. I have had an array of wonderful assignments around the world as a military policeman to include Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, with the 503rd MP Bn, 16th MP Bde. I retired from the US Army in 1994.

My wife Edith and I have been married for 35 years, and we have 3 sons, Adam, Brian, and Todd. Adam lives in Fayetteville, NC, Brian is in the Army and presently assigned in Virginia Beach, VA. Todd also lives in Fayetteville, NC. I wanted my retirement years to be enjoyable and beneficial. I bought a Suzuki (C50) Boulevard, and completed the Motorcycle Safety Course. The Buffalo Soldiers was an organization that I had seen plenty of times in my community doing charitable work, so it was a no brainer for me to petition to joined. I was very proud the day that I was voted into this wonderful organization, and I promised to continue to uphold the traditions of the 9th and 10th Calvary Regiment. My riding handle is “Scorpion”

Earl "Ray" Baker
Dress Committee Chairman

Victor Wooten
Scholarship Committee Chairperson

I was born in Baltimore MD, and raised in South Philly, PA.  I enlisted in the Army right out of High School, and never looked back.  My 23 years of military service span 3 continents, crossing both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Although my Army career started in combat arms, as a Field Artillery soldier, I have experienced a myriad of training, and educational opportunities.  My training includes, but is not limited to logistics, recruiting, human resources and administrative services.

The Army taught me a lot about myself, and also provided a young brotha’ from the hood opportunities to expand educational horizons.  I was able to set and meet several educational goals, enabling me to prepare for a successful transition into life after the Army.

While I have only been retired since 06, I have enjoyed a brief stint in retail management and now I’m enjoying continued service to my country as a civil servant.  My membership and affiliation with the Buffalo Soldiers provides me with the best conduit for my love of freedom and the open road.  Although my riding experience spans almost 30 years off and on, the Buffalo Soldiers are the first club I have seriously considered becoming a member of.  I can’t think of a legacy more deserving of the commitment of my time and dedication than that of the Buffalo Soldiers. 

My ride: 08 Victory Vision (TOTLVSN)

My Handle: Big Woo

My philosophy:  Can’t help those who won’t help themselves

After becoming Active Duty with the XVIII Airborne Corps in 2007, I was deployed once again, almost instantly (2008-2009), as a Rhino Bus Driver, and MRAP crew chief, running missions to BIOP, and the Green Zone.

I was proud to serve then, and it is just as honorable now to serve and carry on a legacy as a Buffalo Soldier.
