Note: This list was compiled from Headquarters European Theater of Operations, United States Army and dated 31 May 1944. Even though this list is pre-D-Day by less than a week it is shorter than many that went before. The reason is, in part, that every sub unit has not been listed.
Those units which contained Black or African-American soldiers are indicated by a “ ”. It is my opinion that many units that were shown as Black in previous lists or Black in later lists have been missed in this 31 May 1944 listing. There are places in this list where I believe that the unit should have been marked as a Black unit and I have shown these as follows “( ?)” I know that I have missed some others altogether.
