For more than two hundred years, African Americans have participated in every conflict in United States history. They not only have fought bravely the common enemies of the United States but also have had to confront the individual and institutional racism of their countrymen. -
Lt. Col. [Ret.] Michael Lee Lanning, author, "The African-American Soldier: From Crispus Attucks to Colin Powell."
