Black History Month: Celebrating Black Veteran Contributions to Our Nation

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

African American veterans have supported and defended our nation as far back as colonial times. During the Civil War, African Americans served in 175 Union Army regiments, comprising over 10 percent of the force. They are known to have served in the Buffalo Soldiers (the Army’s 10th Cavalry Regiment), the Spanish-American War, World War I, Korean War, World War II and all subsequent wars and contingencies.

U.S. National Guard Birthday - December 13

From the NFRW Armed Services Committee

Even though it’s not a federal holiday, the birthday of the U.S. National Guard — celebrated on December 13 — it is an important event to note. Established in 1636, the National Guard is the oldest military organization in America. Its members serve during times of war and emergency. Take time to honor those who have protected our country for centuries.
