The African American Military History Museum hosted a Black History month event this afternoon.

Lila Holley and Kathy Carter talked about their book “The Camouflage Sisters.”

The book includes stories from 14 African American women who served in the military.

Holley is the main author and retired from the military in 2012. She said she wrote “The Camouflage Sisters” to talk about the military from a black woman's perspective.

Holley served 22 years in the military and has been deployed to Iraq, the Philippines and Bosnia.
