New York City, New York Nov 17, 2022 (Issuewire.com) - The History:
The National Association of Black Military Women (NABMW) is an association of women located throughout the country who are veterans or current members of the United States Armed Forces. It was founded under the former name of "The Black WAAC, WAC, Women in Service."
Black Military Women existed or served during American Revolution, World War One, World War Two, and Korean Wars. There was no media, documentaries, or displays. Nothing in the history books. Black Military Women were not shown in war movies. Some of the members of NABMW are women who deployed overseas with the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion during World War II.
The Mission Statement:
To seek out, record, maintain, and tell the history and heritage of African-American Military Women who served and are serving in the United States Armed Forces.
