Since colonial times, African-Americans have fought in America’s wars.  Black soldiers have put their lives on the line for a country that for centuries has enslaved, segregated, and discriminated against them.  Until the Korean War, blacks served in segregated units under racist leadership and were often relegated to labor and service units. Despite the continuous discriminatory treatment that denied blacks full participation in America’s wars and military efforts, these brave men and women lived lives that deserved to be remembered.
