Members of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion take part in a parade ceremony May 27, 1945, in honor of Joan d'Arc at the marketplace where she was burned at the stake. The battalion was made up of 855 enlisted black women and were a great help in World War II moving a year's worth of mail in three months.
