African Americans in the Military: Contributions of Former Enslaved Persons

These stories about African Americans in the military--their courage to face obstacles like racism, their determination to fight for their country and their freedom, their courage under fire whether it came from Nazis in 1944, from the Vietcong in 1969 or from other Americans, their honor in saving lives in their country and around the world—and inspire anyone to transcend any hardships and obstacles in one's one's own life.
