the_ww2_society Two members of the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, the only African-American combat unit to serve on D-Day.
After yesterday's post, I decided to look into the segregated nature of the U.S. Army a little more and remembered an article I read on these guys on June 6, 2004. We tend to forget how common and accepted racism was in the world those days... Oddly enough, in the Second World War fighting was considered a white 'privilege' (lacking a better word) in the U.S. Army. Just ponder a moment about how the situation is today.
These men had the task of protecting combat troops agains strafing airplanes having to guide these low altitude balloons. They saw action on Omaha and Utah and later in besieged Bastogne. Remember seeing these men in 'Band of Brothers'? Yeah, me neither. Saving Private Ryan? Oops, no again. History hasn't been kind to them.

kasey_calwell || We too born to freedom and believing in freedom are willing to fight to maintain freedom. We and all others who believe as deeply as we do would rather die on our feet than live on our knees || ~FDR #DDay

In remembrance of the 209,000 that fell for the Allies in the D-Day battles in June 1944
