Negro League Thomas Turner

The base public relations officer met with Tom and took his picture for an article to appear in The Fort Huachuca Scout which replaced The Apache Sentinel. 

This photo is taken from a Fort Huachuca informational booklet obtained in 1982.  The post houses an Army communications and intelligence training and operation and is a national historic landmark.

The temperature in the Arizona desert was over 100 degrees on Tom's visit in 2002.  Inside the cool, dark museum  artists renderings of Geronimo and other Apache resistance warriors dominated.  Geronimo's quote: "We will fight to the knife."
