Fran Marie had the pleasure of interviewing one of the real Marines, Glen Proctor, our VP of the Montford Point Marines.

You’re invited to the 2023 Montford Point Marines Gala on October 27th. As you know, Marines start and end on time, so arrive at 6 pm. The program begins at 7 pm. There are many Montford Point Marine Chapters across the map, but our Chapter 40 is strong and mighty as they donate their time to improve the world. 

Grab your tickets to the Gala here. 

Learn more about the history of the Montford Point Marines.

They fought for the right to fight from 1942 to 1949. Approximately 20,000 African-American men were admitted to the Marine Corps even though segregation was in place. These brave men had to train at a separate base at Montford Point in Jacksonville, North Carolina, which was a part of Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.
