With Christian A. Fleetwood, Major Arthur Brooks organized the first Colored High School Cadet Corp of the District of Columbia in 1888. The young men under the leadership of Major Arthur Brooks developed a tradition of military service among young colored men in the District of Columbia, which in turn, led to some enlisting in World War I and others to the Colored Officers Training Camp in Fort Des Moines, Iowa.
