Chief Warrant Officer 3 Shekura Gopie, theater munitions officer, Support Operations Munitions, 1st Theater Sustainment Command, took the oath of enlistment in 2001 because she wanted to be part of something greater and have a sense of purpose after September 11th. The history of African Americans serving in our military is very rich and dates back to the Revolutionary War. Gopie believes it is important to know where we came from to understand how far we have come as an Army and as a Nation.
