We don’t want to end the month without mentioning Black History Month
I had the opportunity to interview two African Americans who served in World War II.
Vaughan Whitworth was a Montford Point Marine who later served in the Pacific. If you don’t know what a Montford Point Marine is, check out his story printed in my book, We Gave Our Best: American WWII Veterans Tell Their Stories.
His excerpt from that book is at my blog here.
Vaughan served his family and country well before passing away in November 2019.
Sam Hayward served in the Navy aboard the USS Yorktown when it was at battle. His story is published in my book, They Did It for Honor: Stories of American WWII Veterans.
Thanks to all of our veterans for their service.
