This August, General Charles Q. Brown, Jr. was sworn in as the first Black chief of a military service in the 245 year history of the United States armed forces. He credits the historic achievement to the struggles and sacrifices of the many who came before him, including the barrier-breaking Tuskegee Airmen of World War II. With his swearing in, General Brown highlighted intentions for renewed focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the service’s ranks to ensure that all who come after him are afforded the same opportunities to excel.
