TME Looks Back
TME Looks Back: African-American Engineering Battalions in the Pacific TheatersIn the face of these challenges, Black servicemembers overcame and persevered, making valuable contributions to the war effort. During the war, more than 100 all-Black battalions contributed to everything from combat duty to medical support, reconnaissance, and of course engineering. Of the 157 separate aviation engineering battalions tasked with constructing and maintaining airfields across the world during the war, 48 of them were segregated battalions. Many of these battalions served in the Pacific or China-Burma-India theater.
TME Looks Back: Preserving Sacred Resting PlacesWhen SAME was founded in 1920, its charter members announced that the new Society would be founded for “no selfish ends.” It would be “dedicated to patriotism and national security.” Along with supporting the nation’s engineering needs, the Society remains dedicated to supporting the veterans and servicemembers who build, maintain, and rely on our nation’s infrastructure and all those who serve in uniform. This Memorial Day, TME looks back at the holiday’s history and how SAME members are honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.
