6888th battalion of women included Portsmouth's Doris Moore


After Portsmouth native Doris Moore returned home in 1942 with a bachelor’s degree in hand, she wanted to do something to help her country. America was embroiled in the Second World War at the time, a literal battle between good and evil.
Moore was a woman, and she was Black. Her opportunity to make a significant contribution to the war effort was limited not only by her gender but by her race. This opportunity ultimately arrived with the formation of the 6888th Central Postal Delivery Battalion, an all-Black detachment of the Women’s Army Corps.
In order to achieve success on the battlefield, America’s fighting men needed more than proper training and equipment; more than an effective military strategy to guide them. They had to be reminded at times just why they were fighting so far from home.
