About ‘Six Triple Eight’

Written and directed by Tyler Perry, the film tells the story of World War II’s only Women’s Army Corps unit of color. 

The 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion played a unique role in the war effort. 

They tackled a three-year backlog of undelivered mail, ensuring American soldiers stationed far from home received their letters. 

Despite facing discrimination and navigating a vast, unfamiliar country amidst global conflict, these 855 women brought hope to the front lines. 

Embracing the motto “No mail, low morale,” they lived up to their promise, delivering a staggering 17 million pieces of mail and boosting morale when the United States needed it most.
