92nd Div. In WW2

Hello Everyone,

The 60th Anniverasary of WW2 will be coming to a clse later this year.
There still has been a very unsatisfactory effort to include Black participation in the war.Many Black units have been left out many documentaries,News captions,movies,etc.Only the Tuskeegee Airman if any get a mention.The 92nd Infantry Division,was the largest all black combat organization to fight in WW2.They served in Italy from 1944-45 and over 50 yrs later two members were given the CMH.Lt.John Fox and Lt.Vervon Baker(The only one surviving to recieve the medal).

One Media company asked me for info on Blacks in the Military for a Documentary and flatly refused to include these men and the 372nd of WW1.I was told "they arent popular enough"I have written to History Channel to see if they are interested. No response yet.
