Dear Dale R.,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you review the National Archives Reference Information Paper No. 105: Records of Military Agencies Relating to African Americans from the Post-World War I Period to the Korean War in order to identify the specific military units from which you desire information. You may then submit a request for documents pertaining to their activities. Also, please review NARA’s African American History web pages
Photographs of various U.S. Army, Navy, and Marine Corps activities dating from WWI and WW2 are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS). Please contact RDSS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and their web site is Photographs and Graphic Works in College Park, Maryland.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS & other NARA units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
For Japanese or Filipino government and civilian records, we suggest that you contact the National Archives of that particular country.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Thank you, Cara Jensen! This is very useful information.
