If you check into any of the 100 locations around the country with ties to African-American history, you’ll get the badge during the month of February.
The only Iowa location is the Fort Des Moines Provisional Army Officer Training School at 7200 Southeast 5th Street in Des Moines. It was the training schol where African-Americans were trained to be officers in the U.S. Army during World War I.
Unfortunately – I don’t think I’m going to be in Des Moines this month to pick it up. But hopefully a few of you can!
