Montford Point Marines

Montford Point Marines

Today's featured Marines are the Montford Point Marines!

In 1942, Camp Montford Point was established with the first African Americans to serve as Marines since the American Revolution. The history of Montford Point and the brave men who trained there is a testament to the price African Americans had to pay in order to gain acceptance into one of the nation's most respected institutions.
