Commander Carlton D. Philpot, U.S. Navy (Ret.): Commander Carton D. Philpot has worked for over three decades to recognize and honor the contributions, service, and sacrifices of African-American military units and Army women who have served with courage, honor, and unselfish devotion. His efforts ensured the building of lasting monuments to recognize the service and sacrifices of Army women and men. Because of his significant contributions, generations will know Cathay Williams-the only known Female Buffalo Soldier, LTC Charity Adams Earley, LTC Harriet Waddy, and the women of the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion.
