    "The story of this nation's African-American military history can be traced back to the dawn of the republic. Five years before the Revolution, Boston citizens confronted a squad of English soldiers. A black man took control of the protest and challenged the Redcoats. The British raised their weapons and fired. In that one volley, Crispus Attucks, an escaped slave, became the first man to give his life for a cause that would become the American Revolution. Years later, Thomas Jefferson immortalized his sacrifice when he wrote: "The blood of Attucks nourished the tree of liberty..."

    "From those early struggles to our current battle against global terrorism, black soldiers have risked their lives in defense of this nation in the dual effort to preserve freedom for their country while attempting to acquire it for themselves. Their long struggle has been as painful as it was heroic -- their sacrifices profound and their enormous contributions largely ignored."
