TRANSCRIPTS OF BLACK WW2 MARINES

The nation's first African-American Marines

In this section of the site, you'll find interviews from over sixty interviews conducted with Montford Point veterans.

In reading the transcripts, we hope you'll get a sense of the importance of the role that these men played in both Marine Corps and American history.

The stories you'll read cover a variety of emotional topics, and include everything from what it was like to go to basic training to how racism affected these Marines both in the Corps and their daily life.

In many cases, the veterans interviewed had waited their entire lives to share the Montford Point story-- their Montford Point story--with the world.
