Fort Des Moines, Iowa, was the only training camp established in the United States exclusively for Black officers. A few were trained and commissioned at Camps Hancock, Pike and Taylor, and a few received commissions at officers' training camps in France, but the War Department records do not specify which were white and which Black. The Fort Des Moines camp lasted from June until October 1917. Following is the roster of Black officers commissioned.
