February is Black History Month. I co-sponsored the official Assembly proclamation and wanted to highlight the Harlem Hellfighters of the NY Army National Guard 369th Infantry. This all Black combat unit is one of the most renowned and decorated in history. Currently I am assigned to its descendant unit the 369th Sustainment Brigade and have had the honor to learn the great history of the 369th. I encourage you to read about the Harlem Hellfighters and share the story of our brave heroes whose accomplishments are remembered and celebrated in every formal gathering of the modern day Brigade. https://nmaahc.si.edu/blog-post/remembering-harlem-hellfighters
