The Six Triple Eight
We were honored to host  Celebrating Women In The Army: The Past, The Present, The Future  at the 2019 AUSA Annual Meeting  last Monday! The event featured a documentary screening and panel discussion of The Six Triple Eight Postal Directory Battalion.

Stars and Stripes  was there to capture some of the amazing moments celebrating the 6888th Battalion and Indiana Hunt-Martin, a 97-year-old World War II veteran from the historic unit whom many of the attendees credited for “paving the way” for their service.

2019 AUSA Highlights
“It is fitting that we pay tribute to the female Soldiers of the past as we work today to shape the Army of the future for ALL our Soldiers....From the members of the Women’s Army Corps, to the first female rangers – it’s important for future generations to learn from the brave women who opened doors for them.“
LTG Thomas C. Seamands, Keynote Speaker

"All I know is that this experience...is something I will never forget" said Indiana Hunt-Martin

All of those in attendance felt the same way about the experience.
