In 1945, 855 women arrived at the Third Army Women's Army Corps Training Center, at Fort Oglethorpe Georgia, to finish their basic training for a one-of-a-kind mission: clear a 2-year backlog of mail for American G.I.'s in Europe.
The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion was the only all-African American, all-women unit to serve overseas during World War II.
Join us and watch their incredible story unfold. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with film producer, James W. Theres.
Did a member of your family serve in the 6888th? Do you live in the tristate region?
We would love to hear from you!
