 STANDING ON THEIR SHOULDERS

WE COULD NOT HAVE, WOULD NOT HAVE
DONE IT WITHOUT THEM

THEY PAVED THE WAY FOR US "TO SERVE"

  • We have no idea of what it took to live in the days of segregation and discrimination.
  • We have no idea of what it meant to live in real poverty
  • We have no idea of what it meant to be in a man's world
  • We have no idea of what it meant to be Black, Female and serve in the military
  • We have no idea of what it really meant to serve during.........
"WORLD WAR TWO".
 
 DO YOU KNOW ANY OF THESE LADIES? 
 WELL YOU SHOULD!!! 
 
       They served in many areas during the WORLD WAR TWO and became outstanding citizens of the United States.  They live quietly in your neighborhoods.  They are probably your mothers, grandmothers, great grand mothers or even great great grand mothers.  Do you know who they are.  Well it time that you find out.  It time that your children know, your neighbors know, your church members know that they have SHEROS in their families and communities.   We should be honoring these ladies who served in  our United States Armed Forces to allow us to live under the  freedoms that we have today. 
       If you look at any of the old war movies, you barely see a female Soldier and never see a Black Female Soldier.  If so they were probably our wonderful nurses.  But our Sister Soldiers served in all areas.  IT IS TIME THAT WE TELL THEIR STORIES AND GIVE HONOR TO OUR LADIES WHO SERVED.
