The 761st Tank Battalion was a tank battalion of the United States Army during World War II. The 761st was made up primarily of African soldiers, who by federal law were not permitted to serve alongside white troops. They were known as the "Black Panthers" after their unit's distinctive insignia, and their motto was "Come out fighting". Most of the black tankers had to train in installations located in deep South. There were many acts of racism, including murder, against the black battalion troops by soldiers, including a riot in Alexandria on January 10th, 1942 two months prior to the battalion's activation which resulted in many people being beaten, teargassed, and fired upon by pistols and shotguns, resulting in numerous casualties. Several members of the 761st vowed to retaliate. They commandeered six tanks and a half-track and were on their way to get payback, but was chased down by a Commanding officer who stopped the soldiers.The battalion first saw combat on 7 November 1944. During one battle Tank commander Sergeant Warren G. H. Crecy came to the aid of his men on 10 November 1944, and fought through enemy positions until his tank was destroyed. He eliminated an enemy position that had knocked out his tank by commandeering a vehicle armed with only a .30-caliber machine gun. He then eliminated the German line who were directing artillery fire on the US positions. After manning a replacement tank, Crecy's new vehicle lost traction in heavy mud and he was forced to exit the tank under fierce machine gun, antitank, and artillery fire to free the tracks. When attacked by German infantry, he had to abandon his salvage efforts to man the .50-caliber machine gun, effectively holding off the advancing enemy, then forcing them to withdraw. Crecy had destroyed an antitank position and a number of German machine gun positions armed only with a machine gun and without regard for his personal safety, under heavy fire. His men reportedly experienced difficulty getting the machine gun away from him after the action. The 761th recieved, 1 Presidential Unit Citation Medal of Honor:296 Purple Hearts: 11 Silver Stars: 69 Bronze Stars:

Just look at the moon.

Somewhere
Is looking at the same moon too.

Dream Big.
