The 6888th Central Directory Postal Battalion was World War II’s only all-female, all-Black battalion. The unit has been getting some long overdue attention after a 2019 article by Kevin M. Hymel published in WWII History magazine inspired a movement that led to the unit being awarded a Congressional Gold Medal in 2022.
