PATTON'S PANTHERS The 761st Tank Battalion was an independent tank battalion of the United States Army during World War II. The 761st was made up primarily of African-American soldiers, who by federal law were not permitted to serve alongside white troops; the Army did not officially desegregate until after World War II. They were known as the Black Panthers after their unit's distinctive insignia; their motto was “Come out fighting”.
