In 1945, the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion did what others could not. The Women’s Army Corps (WAC) unit of over 800 Black, Hispanic, and Cuban Army women deployed to England and France during WWII to sort through a backlog of nearly 17 million letters and packages to deliver to American soldiers serving in the European Theater of Operations.  Correspondent Alexis Clark meets with U.S. Army Women’s Foundation Board Director, Colonel Edna Cummings, U.S. Army, Retired, who is making sure the work of the 6888th isn’t forgotten.
