What a great piece of history. The Montford Point Marines are really just now being brought ot the forefront of our (USMC) history.

As newer recruits attempt to become Marines, they will learn about this hidden history. Notice that the Marines are considered 'Montford Point Marines' vice 'Marines' (the segragated south/segragated USMC).

Montford Point is in NC while the rest of the USMC recruits went to Parris Island, SC.

Mayor Dinkins was one of these Montford Point Marines...
