Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The history of African-American men in the US armed forces during the first fifty years of the 20th Century is completely unknown to 99% Euro-Americans.  Example, white Americans, especially southern whites, were driven stark raving bonkers when they found "colored troops" were preferred by Brit women during World War II.  Another, the same group had the same reaction when the French refused to enforce Jim Crow segregation laws in Paris during World War I.
