Griffin-McClendon served in the 6888th Central Postal Directory Battalion, known as the SixTripleEight, that was sent to England and France to clear a backlog of 17 million pieces of mail during WWII.

The SixTripleEight was the only all-black female battalion to serve in Europe during WWII.

The Maj. Fannie Griffin-McClendon scholarship is sponsored by the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) Foundation.
