Ethnic units in the US Army



Dear List
Springing from a discussion on the Topical WWII list, I ended up creating the following list of "ethnic" units in the US Army. I included all combat units I could find, also AAA.
Other than decidedly "ethnic" units, I also added African-American units at the end, and included are also Puerto Rican and Philippine units.
I have left out the Philippine Commonwealth Divisions that were apparently not formally taken into the US Army (The Philippine Division, whom I believe to be the same as the 1st Philippine Division being the exception).
