We use various public information tools (Newspapers, websites, books, documentaries, and other media outlets) to search out information on black military women. A lot of personal military history information is provided by the specific individuals through the NABMW Journal and membership. We do not take responsibility for the validity of any information provided to us from these individuals or from public information postings from tools listed above. The source of all information on this website will be listed.
