lift the ban on black women serving although they were still segregated the
855 women’s strong battalion work 24/7 moving mountains of letters and care
packages to millions of military service members on the battlefield all over
Europe their motto was no male low morale amazing they were the only ones
they were the only ones can you imagine being in a country where were at war and
