On Feb 3rd, 1945, The all women of color, Six-Triple-Eight, was sent overseas to clear a two year backlog of mail. They were told it would take six months to a year to get every letter and package sorted and delivered. The Six-Triple-Eight did the entire job in three months. We salute you, women of the 6888th. This episode is a small part of their story.
