Montford Point Memories: Allen Williams
Our Montford Point Marines series, honoring the legacy of the first African-Americans in the Marine Corps, continues with recollections from 88-year-old Allen Williams. Mr. Williams left Connecticut to enlist in the Marine Corp in 1948. He was 18-years-old when he arrived at Camp Montford Point for basic training. The complete interview with Mr. Williams will soon be archived in the Military Collections at the State Archives of North Carolina.
