106th Rescue Wing Recognizes African American Contributions, Past and Present

WESTHAMPTON BEACH, New York- Colonel (retired) Terrance Holiday talks about the importance of the 369th Infantry to the 106th Rescue Wing for the African American History Celebration, February 6th, 2016. Colonel Terrance Holiday, who had one uncle who served with the famed Tuskegee Airmen-the all black 332nd Fighter Group-during World War II, and another who fought with the 369th Infantry, the Harlem Hellfighters, during World War I, told wing members that there is so much more to learn concerning the roles that African Americans played in the military. The purpose of the National African American History Month Celebration at the 106th Rescue Wing is to highlight contributions African Americans have made throughout the history of our country, their struggle for freedom and equality, and to deepen the understanding of our own history as a nation.
