Documentary Mondays 'Never Forget' Talk Back Series: The Six Triple Eight (in commemoration of Women's Herstory Month)--Rescheduled

In February 1945, the US Army sent 855 black women from the Women’s Army Corps (WAC) to England and France to clear the backlog of mail in the European theater of operations. The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion, known as the Six Triple Eight, was the only all-black female battalion to serve in Europe during World War II. By the war’s end, the Six Triple Eight had cleared over 17 million pieces of backlogged mail ensuring the troops stayed in touch with their loved ones back home. The last of the women returned home in March 1946. They were never fully recognized … until now.
