Did You Know?  The first African-American Marines to be decorated by the  2ndarine Division – Staff SergeantMarine Division – Staff Sergeant Timerlate Kirven and Corporal Samuel J. Love, Sr. – won purple hearts for wounds received in the assault on Saipan.  Ironically, these men were part of the Marine Corps’ black service units and were not specifically trained for combat.  Unlike the Marines in the two black combat battalions, men in the USMC’s depot and ammunition companies frequently came under fire during WWII; 9 were killed in action, while another 78 were wounded.

WE WILL BE AT STOP & SHOP BEDFORD ST IN JULY !!!!!
