Joe Brown served in two wars during the time when black soldiers were finally getting the respect they deserved in the Unites States military. He was drafted into the U. S. Army at the end of WWII and released early when the war ended. Then the Korean War came and in his third year of medical school, he was called back into service. Soon Joe found himself in a medical unit in the thick of the fighting in North Korea. This is his story in his own words. This is black history at it’s finest; personal and true to life.

Afro-Americans have served their country well and played a significant role in the military during America’s pre­revolutionary and post-revolutionary wars. On July 26, 1948, President Truman issued Executive Order 9981 establishing equality of treatment and opportunity in the Armed Forces of the United States. This executive order was reinforced by President Eisenhower, who formed the Air Force as a distinct military entity and dissolved the old Army Air Force. The Korea conflict proved their wisdom in the integration of the United States of America’s Military and dismantling of all black military units.
