The 761st Tank Battalion, also known as the "Black Panthers," was a pioneering African American armored unit that showed exceptional bravery during World War II. They were activated in 1942 and earned the nickname "Black Panthers" because of their fierce panther insignia, which represented their strength and determination. Their motto, "Come Out Fighting," reflected their unbeatable spirit and their preparedness to face challenges directly.

Serving under General Patton's command, the battalion fought heroically across Europe, including pivotal engagements such as the Battle of the Bulge and the liberation of concentration camps. Despite enduring racial discrimination stateside and within the military, the 761st earned a Presidential Unit Citation, and many soldiers received individual honors. Notable members included Staff Sergeant Ruben Rivers, posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, and Sgt. Warren G. H. Crecy, dubbed the "Baddest Man in the 761st." The 761st's exemplary service is a powerful testament to their resilience and the essential contributions of African American soldiers to the Allied victory in World War II.
