The purpose of Black History Month is to make Americans aware of the struggle for freedom and equal opportunity and to celebrate the many achievements of Black Americans in every field. Each February, we observe and reflect on the tremendous contributions of Black Americans to our country and our history. It gives the Army an opportunity to recognize and honor the service and sacrifice of Black Soldiers and civilians. Black Soldiers have defended our nation since the Revolutionary War. They have sacrificed in every conflict in our nation’s history, with more than 247 years of honorable service. They have built a legacy of courage and professionalism by serving the U.S. Army with great honor and distinction, inspiring generations to come.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Martin Luther King Jr. Day, observed on the third Monday of January each year, marks the birthday of the civil rights leader and activist. In 1994, Congress designated Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a national day of service. The theme of the day, “A Day On, Not a Day Off,” encourages individuals to dedicate the day to community service in remembrance of Dr. King’s remarkable legacy and to commit ourselves to instilling his principles of unity and equity throughout the world. • Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. dedicated his life to a dream of equality and challenged the nation to not judge people by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. • The Army is committed to the ideals endorsed by Dr. King and on this national day of service, we honor his dedication to equity and inclusion. • The Army has long embraced a commitment to promote diversity, foster inclusivity, and demonstrate respect for everyone.
