Black History Month 2022

By Kenji ThuloweitJanuary 31, 2022

Black History Month 2022
Each February, Eighth Army joins our nation in observation and reflection of the tremendous contributions of Black Americans to our country and our history. Black Soldiers, who have defended our nation since the Revolutionary War, have built a legacy of courage and professionalism by serving the U.S. Army with great honor and distinction, inspiring generations to come. The U.S. Army story cannot be told without reflecting on the historical achievements made by Black Americans and preserving those memories. Black Americans have served and sacrificed in every conflict in our nation’s history, with more than 245 years of honorable service.

Today, more than 90,000 Black American Soldiers serve in the active U.S. Army, with 39,000 in the U.S. Army Reserve and 52,000 in the National Guard.
