MAJ Charity Adams

2018-7-19 Adams

Major Charity Adams served as the Battalion Commander of the only African-American Women’s Army Corps (WAC) unit to be deployed overseas during World War II. Commanding the 6888th Central Postal Battalion, Adams and her 800 troops were stationed in Birmingham, England.

Although faced with the hardships and inequalities of segregation in the United States Army, Adams and her battalion not only accomplished their mission but earned the respect of their fellow soldiers.

We honor you, Charity Adams.
