Storyboard Text

  • I know you haven't had much time actually fighting, but I have a highly classified mission for you and your men.
  • After the successful rescue mission by the 761st all black tank Battalion, the combat-ready Triple Nickles expected their turn to ''tangle with Hitler."
  • Thank you sir.
  • I hope we get to fight now.
  • Well you got here at last.
  • Yes we were. You colored soldiers, paratroopers, are going to fight forest fires for us.
  • What? But I wanted to fight the enemy!
  • You were expecting us?
  • You boys are going to be smokejumpers.
  • Congratulations, men. You have overcome significant obstacles in order to be the first black men to train a group of Naval Pilots.
  • The Triple Nickles had arrived at their training center in Arizona. Once trained, they trained white men to serve in the same role as smokejumpers.
  • Thank you sir.
  • Even though the Triple Nickles never had a combat mission, they valiantly fought forest fires and prejudice in the northwest United States. Months later they marched side by side with white soldiers celebrating the end of WWII. They wore colorful honors across their chests, showing the victories won by the 82nd Airborne.
  • The 555th was officially integrated into the 82nd Airborne as the 3rd Battalion of the 505th Parachute Infantry Brigade, on December 9, 1947.
  • Soon after, blacks and whites moved into the same barracks together at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. They also moved into leadership positions under Major General James M. Gavin. After this happened, there was no incident of racism.
