A grass of impeccable emerald-green
In the American Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer, thousands of headstones are lined up on a grass of impeccable emerald-green. Most of the soldiers buried there are Americans, but a few Scottish, Canadians and English can be found amongst them. Four women are equally buried there. Three were African American women, named Dolores M. Browne, Mary J. Barlow, and Mary H. Bankston, and they were mail carriers with the all-Black women’s 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion; the fourth one was a volunteer of the Red Cross, named Elizabeth Ann ‘Liz’ Richardson.
