DON'T HESITATE TO DONATE TO 6888




Please don't hesitate to donate to the Six Triple Eight, the All-African American Female Postal Battalion during World War II.

Consider sponsoring a name for $6.88 by going to https://www.womenofthe6888th.org/donations .

The 6888th Central Postal Battalion (Women of Distinction, Dedication, and Determination) consisted of all African-American women who were assigned to Birmingham, England; Rouen, France; and Paris, France during World War II. Their motto: No Mail Low Morale was in reflection of their dedication to their mission which was to clear several years of backlogged mail in the European Theater of Operations.  Led by Major Charity Adams, their battalion commander, they did just that.  They worked in cold, dirty, dark rat infested aircraft hangars with broken windows. Additionally, 7,500 pieces  of mail were addressed to Robert Smith and some just to Junior, US Army.
