Congressional Gold Medal

Rewarding the Montford Point Marines

"It was a medal...authorized for the first black Marines."

“This medal was authorized by President Obama in 2012. And they had a big deal where it was presented by some general in Washington, and I think Obama was supposed to be present, but something else came up and he didn't make it, but anyway, it was a medal that he authorized for the first black Marines, those who went in…between 1942 and 1949.”
