Moving Forward

Sep 22, 2019

One group of unsung heroes of WWII were the women of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion. The 6888th was the first and only all Black Female Women Army Corps (WAC) unit to be deployed overseas during under the Command of Major Charity Adams. Their nickname was the “Six-Triple Eight" and their motto was “No Mail, Low Morale.” 

Kate Sanner, host of Moving Forward, interviews Colonel Edna W. Cummings and Master Sergeant Elizabeth Helm Frazier who discuss the efforts being made to secure the recognition these women so rightfully deserve including the Six Triple Eight Monument, the "Six Triple Eight: No Mail, Low Morale Documentary" and the Six Triple Eight Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2019.
