The African American Military and Veterans Lineage Project, managed by the NC Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, is designed to address the lack of information regarding the roles, triumphs, and heroism that North Carolina African Americans played in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf Wars, and War on Terror. In the early conflicts, despite being given inferior equipment and less training, as well as navigating a segregated and biased military, Black Americans served with valor and courage. Most of their accomplishments do not exist in many American history books. Therefore, the African American Military and Veterans Lineage Project works to properly document and preserve the unknown or overlooked history of North Carolina African American participation in America’s wars.
