1279th Combat Engineers

First organized in 1937, the unit that became the 1279th Combat Engineer Battalion was the Michigan National Guard’s only all-African-American organization. The 1279th saw service in the South Pacific during World War II, including the Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Luzon. The 1279th Combat Engineer Battalion was one of the state’s African-American units to serve with distinction during that war. Unlike other Michigan African-American units, though, the 1279th was led by African-American officers. And, despite the 1948 Executive Order issued by President Harry S. Truman, the battalion remained segregated. Following World War II, the unit was re-designated as the 1279th Combat Engineer Battalion.
