WHAT IS MISSION MONTFORD POINT?
It is a powerful and poignant 30-minute documentary special: “Our America: Mission Montford Point.” The documentary focuses on the brave trailblazers who were the first Black men to serve in the U.S. Marine Corps, the Montford Point Marines, trained in North Carolina. Chronicling their history, this special also highlights the dedicated individuals locating these Marines and their descendants in an effort to honor them with the Congressional Gold Medal.
“Our America: Mission Montford Point,” is so much more than a documentary special, but rather a service to our community as we, along with our station partners, will work to identify the families of the 18,000 Montford Point Marines that have yet to receive their Congressional Gold Medal.
